It can make a golfer's career to win the U.S. Open, but Ben Hogan won four times in six years, three of them after a near-fatal head-on automobile collision. Driven by an obsessive dedication to the game, he practiced until his hands bled, and the concentration and precision he exhibited on the course awed spectators and fellow players alike. Here Curt Sampson explores the milestones of Hogan's life: his father's suicide, his miraculous comeback, and his many triumphs on the Tour. Drawing on interviews with Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, and Sam Snead, Sampson crafts a portrait of a man with the confidence to turn the negatives he encountered into a life of achievement.
