If you were out enjoying the first weekend of spring, you may have missed two great Golf Channel pieces about Ben Hogan’s breakthrough win at Pinehurst.
Saturday marked the 75th anniversary of Hogan’s first professional win on Pinehurst No. 2. The historic victory broke a seven-year winless streak and set in motion one of the most successful careers of all time.
Hogan proceeded to win the Greater Greensboro Open and the Land of the Sky Open in Asheville. He went on to become one of just four golfers to win a career grand slam.
Pinehurst No. 2’s starters will be celebrating Hogan’s win all month long by donning Hogan-style caps. They’ll share his story with the players who are about to walk the fairways Hogan dominated in 1940.
Be sure to take 5 minutes out of your day to watch both of these videos and head over to PinehurstStories.com to learn more about Hogan.
