Hogan 1-iron at Merion 1950 US Open - The Underdog

Catalog Number: GY02-1001

One of the greatest underdog story of all time... In 1949 Ben Hogan had a near fatal car accident; his doctors said he might never walk again, let alone play golf competitively. Against all odds be recovered and went on to win the 1950 US Open.

Ben Hogan's One Iron shot on the 72nd hole of the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion is one of golf's greatest moments. This lithographic reproduction is accompanied with a copy of the Life Magazine article, ''Triple Tie In The Open,'' that followed Hogan's victory. One of the greatest photographs in the history of American golf. Shot by Life Magazines' Hy Peskin, who was able to position himself behind Ben Hogan and capture the famous One Iron shot on the 72nd hole of the 1950 U.S. Open. First generation photograph from the original negative - so clear you can see the flight of the ball and every other detail of the moment. This photographic reproductions is the perfect gift for that special someone who had overcome great obstacles to reach their goals and dreams.
