Ben Hogan was Texas tough
"[Ben Hogan] said there's three ways to beat somebody: You outwork them, you out-think them and then you intimidate them," says 1964 U.S. Open winner Ken Venturi.
Courage is a word too frequently used by sportswriters in glamorizing an athlete's performance. But courage is not hitting a game-winning homer in the ninth inning or sinking a tournament-winning birdie putt on the 72nd hole. Courage is throwing yourself across the passenger seat to shield your wife as an out-of-control bus comes barreling down at your car.That's courage. That's what Ben Hogan did.
