This is a wonderful story about Ben Hogan, his accident, and the amazing drive he showed to win the US Open over 90 holes of golf over 4 days. Frankly, I don't know how he did it, considering his horrible physical condition, and survive the experience.
I would easily recommend this to anyone interested in golf, or the ability of a human to overcome tremendous adversity. The thought of Hogan diving across the car to protect his wife strikes a strong chord in this old married man. The information on the other golfers is also quite interesting, as well.
As noted in the book, the photo on the cover is probably the most famous photo in golf.
history. Lots of history about Mr. Hogan and other golfers. Interesting tidbits on how the game has changed and
evolved over time. All of this is built around a straightforward bio of Mr. Hogan. The portrayal of his determination
to play and win after his near fatal car accident is very inspiring. That the shot was made while his legs were wrapped
in bandages and he could barely walk (this was on the 36th hole of the day) makes it all the more inspiring.
A very good read for any golf fan and particularly for any Hogan fans.
I am glad I read it though as there was so much information and I learnt a lot about not just the main players, but all the players who counted. This probably sounds hypocritical but for all the effort, I felt it was worth the reward.
