Golf Fact: Golfing Greats Ben Hogan; generally considered one of the greatest players in the history of the game. Born within six months of two other acknowledged golf greats of the 20th century, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson, Hogan is notable for his profound influence on the golf swing theory and his legendary ball-striking ability. His nine career professional major championships tie him with Gary Player for fourth all-time, trailing only Jack Nicklaus (18), Tiger Woods (14) and Walter Hagen (11). He is one of only five golfers to have won all four major championships currently open to professionals (the Masters Tournament, The Open (despite only playing once), the U.S. Open, and the PGA Championship). The other four are Nicklaus, Woods, Player, and Gene Sarazen. Ben Hogan is widely acknowledged to have been among the greatest ball strikers ever to have played golf. Although he had a formidable record as a tournament winner, it is this aspect of Hogan which mostly underpins his modern reputation. Hogan wa ...

This group is all about Joe Norwood who conceived (not theorized) a golf swing that began with a meeting between him, Walter Hagen and Harry Vardon in 1910 when they convinced him to stay on teaching as Alexander Findlay mentored him to be. His quest was to dissect the human body over decades and find out how they do what they do. The result is a swing so perfect that one can swing darts at basketballs 150 yards away. This groups message will bring the teachings of Joe Norwood who taught the professionals and whose swing encompasses that best of Walter Travis, Harry Vardon, Alexander Findlay, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead and Bruce Crampton. Each of these great golfers has brought something of their greatness into the Joe Norwood Golf Swing.

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. – Proverbs 24:16 “Now what you have to understand Bobby is that three bad shots and one good shot still make par. You see, golf is the game of recovery.” – Jeremy Northam, as Walter Hagen, in the movie Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius (2004). In life everybody messes up from time to time, the just and the wicked, the diligent and the lazy. The difference between the two is the getting up part, or, the recovery. The man of character and faith does not stay in the dirt; he gets up, he pushes on, confident that he can, by the grace of God, get it right. It matters all the more when you are in a place of leadership, where others are watching to see how you handle the setback. As a leader of troops, or a manager of an office, or a parent with children at home, the getting up is about more than just yourself. One of my favorite sports movies is Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius, which tells the story of Bobby J .. ...
More than 80 years after Bobby Jones' ball barely budged, the story is still told to show golf is a game of honor. The great amateur was competing in the 1925 U. S. Open when, unbeknownst to anyone but himself, Jones' ball moved ever so slightly as he addressed it in the rough. There were no referees to call a foul, no officials to slap him with a penalty. Jones' playing companion, Walter Hagen, didn't see the infraction, nor did his caddie or any spectators. The tournament title hung in the balance, but when the round was completed, it soon became known that Jones had assessed himself a 1-stroke penalty. The ball moving did not help him any, nor was it any great violation. But it happened, and those are the rules. So Jones thought nothing of it. That stroke cost him outright victory, and he then went on to lose a 36-hole playoff to Willie Macfarlane. Afterward, when sportswriter O.B. Keeler sought to applaud Jones for his sportsmanship, the golfer implored him not to even write about the incident. Hulton ...

Well, finally home. Strange feeling pulling back into your old boring neighborhood after quite the adventure we had. Driving TO Phoenix through Cali was longer, but I at least had interesting things to look at. The way back was faster...but there was...uh...nothing. A few small town, like ten brothels, and nothing but long long dark desert. Felt like Hills Have Eyes as Hagen put it. But, the entire trip was worth it. The hotel turned out not to be that bad. I got my money back when I checked out, so it was just a deposit. Still very confusing that they didn't really warn me about it. But, I'll be more prepared for it next year. I have a lot of new ideas for my local clan to make things a lot more interesting. Lot's of interesting people down in Phoenix, and like 99% of the women there alone were very beautiful ladies.

James Lawton: Sir Alex Ferguson's exit from Manchester United leaves a yawning vacuum but values of ambition and loyalty are still in place A A A He may have absorbed the declaration of Walter Hagen that some time everyone must stop to smell the flowers Ferguson celebrates his latest, and last, Premier League title triumph By JAMES LAWTON Thursday 09 May 2013 You may have hated the harsh, even brutal swagger of his nature. You might always argue that no one ever pursued his advantages more cynically, more relentlessly. But then if you also love football, its power to capture the attention of the world, what do you inhabit today? It is the vacuum, the great yawning space at the heart of the game, once occupied by Sir Alex Ferguson. Football without Ferguson, we had reason to believe, is going to be like tonic without gin, soda without Scotch. It is a cocktail separated from one of its biggest kicks. But the kick, we have to ask, of what? It is the kick and the thrust of a desire to win which so often appea ...

Philippians 3:13 Golf Philosophy In his autobiography, The Tumult and the Shouting, the great sports columnist Grantland Rice once gave this advice about past mistakes: “Because golf exposes the flaws of the human swing—a basically simple maneuver—it causes more self-torture than any game short of Russian roulette. The quicker the average golfer can forget the shot he has dubbed or knocked off line—and concentrate on the next shot—the sooner he begins to improve and enjoy golf. Like life, golf can be humbling. However, little good comes from brooding about mistakes we’ve made. The next shot, in golf or life, is the big one. “Walter Hagen, a dazzling ornament to the history of sport, had the soundest golf philosophy I’ve ever known. More important, he applied it. “‘Grant,’ he said, ‘I expect to make at least seven mistakes each round. Therefore, when I make a bad shot I don’t worry about it. It’s just one of those seven.’ “I saw Hagen make 19 mistakes during one round in a N ...

Gene Sarazen: * - We knew about his Championship wins and rivalry with the great Bobby Jones & Walter Hagen. * - We also know about his modern invention of a sand wedge in the early ‘30s. * - Masters Tournament wins. * - We also know he’s only 5’ 5” tall. But, did you know he also designed a golf course? Sometimes we are wound up to play big/long courses along with the big boys and have it beat us up then we end up not wanting to post our triple digit scores nor even talk about it at dinner. (funny, but true!) Go play those fun but shorter course from time to time. Work on those shaped shots with the irons. Have some fun. Laugh a little. Experience what fun is from time to time. There are plenty of fun courses out there. Shadow Mountain Golf Club is a fine course for instance. Enjoy your day! Plays! . . . and plays with friends.

While playing a round of golf with Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones accidentally moved his ball lining up a shot. Jones called over the officials and explained what he had done. The officials conferred with Hagen, and they agreed that neither they nor anyone in the considerable crowd following them had seen Jones' ball move. The officials left it up to Jones. Without hesitation, he assessed himself a one-stroke penalty. When the officials congratulated him on his integrity, Jones replied, "That's like congratulating a man for not robbing a bank." He then added, "I don't know how else to play the game." That round of golf was in the U.S. Open. Bobby Jones lost that tournament ... by one stroke.

Two wonderful points to remember: 1) Not since Walter Hagen in the 1920's has a player turned up three minutes before his tee time in a police car, see World No. 1 Northern Irishman Rory Mc Ilroy. 2) Ryder Cup ends with Tiger still on the course ! Oh boy, Captain Davis Love, you may have some 'splaining to do. Still, something about this event -- the European team always is easy to cheer for. Fair, fun and no gamesmanship. Did you see Kuchar make Westwood clinch from 2 feet, instead of conceding? He was what 2 or 3 down, with just a couple to play. It's a strange, wonderful game. Congratulations, lads played great. What a year for European sport. Now let's hope Detroit Tiger Miguel Cabrera wins the triple crown (see Carl Yastrzemski 1967)... Ok Davis, you're off the hook: Tiger just missed from 3 ft! It is so.over.

Golf Channel shared the following link and had this to say about it: Tiger Woods has an opportunity to achieve another significant milestone this week: Matching the record of five wins in the PGA Championship jointly held by Jack Nicklaus & Walter Hagen. Yes or No: Will Woods win his 5th PGA Championship this week? All the haters n nay sayers will say no but we will see who's holdin the Wanamaker trophy Sunday
favorite quote in a long time!! North Korean golfing legend (and oppressive dictator) Kim Jong Il passed away over the weekend. He was just 69 years old, but laid claim to golfing skills that would make greats like Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Walter Hagen weep with envy. Back in 1994, the man set a record that is likely to stand forever. Playing his first round of golf on a regulation, PGA-style, 18-hole course, Kim Jong Il scored 11 holes-in-one while he carded a stunning 38 UNDER par. Seventeen bodyguards were on hand to witness and attest the score. Regarding the 11 holes-in-one on a single round, that feat will only be repeated on putt-putt golf courses as most regulation-sized courses typically have only four holes short enough to reasonably be considered candidates for scoring an ace. Sadly, the golfing world outside of North Korea has yet to accept this round of golf as legitimate.
If you want tradition Bobby Jones & Walter Hagen have played here, is a big fan and we were designed by JH Taylor
Played Cedar Crest today, where boy Byron Nelson gave Walter Hagen his hat on the last hole because he was blinded by the sun! Won 1927 PGA
Options Roy Forbes III Today Tiger Woods won his 73 professional tournament , tying him with Jack Nicklaus , and tigers is 4 majors away from tying him for majors ! This means if he stopped playing today that only one guy would be above him in the history of professional golf in major victories. The next ones behind tiger in Majors are Walter Hagen with 11 majors , Ben Hogan with 9, and Gary Player with 9 and Tom Watson with 8, and Bobby Jones with 7 . Wow!

Walter Hagen - Notice the hands at the finish. Compare the position vs. the Ben Hogan photo. Different club and shot, but very different golf swings.

The eyes of the world were directed towards a party at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan. This would be a celebration unlike any the World had ever seen, for on this day Detroiters would celebrate a new title that combined the accomplishments of her citizenry into a new ideal. On this date, Detroit became known as "The City of Champions." At this celebration were the Detroit Tigers, Lions and Red Wings who had all won their 1st Championships in the same season (no city since, has equalled this). Alongside them sat the guest of honor--Joe Louis (1935 A.P. Most Outstanding Athlete).
