Ben Hogan

Welcome to Ben Hogan Quotes

Ben Hogan Quotes is our tribute to a man considered one of the PGA Tour's greatest players and biggest stars, even though his career was interrupted once by World War II, and then again by a devastating car accident that robbed him of more playing time. Although he recovered enough to play again, his game was never quite the same and his time commitment was reduced due to circulatory problems.

Ben Hogan was only 17 years old when he turned pro in 1929, but didn't join the PGA Tour until 1932. Ben Hogan was a fierce competitor who struggled through a hook producing swing through his early career, but worked hard to overcome that hook swing and developed his swing to produce a controlled fade that then dominated his game and produced his championship career. In his own words, Ben Hogan was quoted to have said, he "dug it out of the dirt", and from that change forward in 1940 Ben Hogan began winning.

Following are just a handful of the more memorable Ben Hogan Quotes.
