About This Photograph

Ben Hogan's 1-iron approach shot to the 72nd green of the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa., is one of the pivotal shots game's history. Hogan parred the hole to get into an 18-hole playoff, which he went on to win over Lloyd Mangrum and George Fazio the following day. The victory, the second of Hogans record-tying four U.S. Open titles, came just 16 months after he was gravely injured when a Greyhound bus struck the car in which he and his wife, Valerie, were traveling. After the accident, doctors wondered if he would ever walk again, much less play professional golf. (USGA Golf Museum, from the Hy Peskin Collection)
