      +Charlie Pilgrim His figure and the aura around him as you say only grows
      greater every passing year. He is definitely became a mythical figure, and
      he will be revered for all time. Hogan is golf like Pele is to Futbol or
      Babe Ruth to Baseball or Jordan to Basketball or Bobby Orr to Hockey or Jim
      Brown to American Football or Rod Laver to Tennis. Nicklaus is right there
      as well, but like Tommy Bolt once said, “I have seen Nicklaus watch Hogan
      practice, but I have never seen Hogan watch Nicklaus practice. Between
      missing so much time to WWII, the accident cutting down on the events he
      could enter, and it really taking 12 years or so before he started winning
      at all, his record is mind boggling. Not to mention his golf swing and
      understanding of it.

    Great pictures of the great man. When I think golf, I think of Scotland and
    Ben Hogan; like Yankee Stadium and Babe Ruth. As fate would only have it,
    Hogan played his one and only British Open at arguably the toughest course
    in the world, and definitely the most difficult in the Open Rota. Why would
    it have been any other way? Hogan has more fans now than he did when he was
    actually playing. The epitome of what hard work and perserverance can
    achieve if somebody is really passionate about something,
