Ben Hogan discovered golf as a fifteen-year-old caddie. He turned pro at seventeen, joined the tour full-time as a nineteen-year-old in 1931, and has won nine pro majors. A four-time PGA Player of the Year, he is one of only four golfers to win all four professional majors. At forty-one, he won five of six tournaments, including the Masters, U.S. Open and the British Open. Hogan died at eighty-four in 1997 in his home in Fort Worth.

Washington It's the first time words and illustrations have made
golfing technique absolutely clear. I'm applying the lessons to my
teaching program here and highly recommending them to my pupils.
I'd say it's the greatest instruction series of all time. Women are
particularly keen on it. It'll make a lot of new golfers -- good
Jim Fogerty Professional, Sunset Country Club, St. Louis Most articles on golf deal only in theory, but Ben is to be congratulated on probably the most practical series on golf instruction ever written.
