Having been called the finest book on Ben Hogan ever published, this collection of writings about the famous linksman covers his entire golf life. The lead essay is by Valerie Hogan, written with Dave Anderson, the Pulitzer Prize winner of the New York Times, while Dan Jenkins, a noted golf writer and Hogan pal, provides another. Original commentary by Red Smith on Hogan’s 1950 U.S. Open win at Merion is included, as is his swing analysis by Jim McLean. Many of the 350-plus photos have never before been published.
