Ben Hogan is known as the greatest ball striker of all time, and he was also one of the most private. These are the Hogan stories that you've never heard, stories that unlock the mystery to who he was as person.
As a collegiate golfer in the 1980's, Kris Tschetter was fortunate enough to gain membership to the prestigious Shady Oaks Country Club in Texas where Ben Hogan was a member. There was an unwritten rule at the club: Don't bother Mr. Hogan. But 18-year-old Tschetter was unaware of the spell he held over the golf world when she first passed him in the halls of Shady Oaks. Maybe it was Tschetter's work ethic, or maybe it was just her youthful enthusiasm, but Hogan noticed her practicing and offered to help her with her swing. And a unique friendship began.
By the time Tschetter met Mr. Hogan he was in his 70's and although his golf swing hadn't changed, his enthusiasm for the game had waned. The two spent countless hours practicing together on the "little nine" at Shady Oaks, and Tschetter saw a side of Mr. Hogan that few ever knew. While he taught her priceless lessons on golf and life, she helped him recapture his passion for golf by giving him the chance to take the journey all over again.
Mr. Hogan, The Man I Knew sets the record straight about this American icon,revealing his humor and sensitivity. It captures the magical connection that sometimes happens in life in a truly beautiful story about an unlikely friendship between two very different people who shared the same passion.
