Tips From Ben Hogan

A great Ben Hogan story (and perhaps apocryphal)

During a pro am, Ben Hogan’s partner expressed admiration for the way Hogan’s seven iron checked up on the green. Thereafter, he kept pestering The Hawk for tips on how to pull off such a shot. In his usual taciturn way, Ben ignored his partner as long as he could.

Finally, Ben asked the man how far he actually hit his seven iron. “A hundred twenty,” the amateur replied.

Ben glared at him. “Then why the hell would you want it to stop?”
