Ben Hogan - Follow The Sun DVD

This DVD pays homage to Ben Hogan, a nine-time major winner who lived to dig golf balls out of the dirt. Hogan was a mythic figure who survived a head-on collision with a Greyhound bus on a foggy Texas highway and 16 months later limped through 72 holes and an 18-hole playoff against Lloyd Mangrum and George Fazio to win the 1950 U.S. Open.

Hollywood noticed the miracle comeback and public adulation, and made the first feature film about a golfer, starring Glenn Ford as Hogan and Anne Baxter as Hogans wife, Valerie. Hogan was a technical adviser on the film and drove everybody nearly mad said his longtime golf partner Jimmy Demaret. He had good reason-Ford wasnt much of a golfer. Follow the Sun came out in 1951 and received mostly favorable reviews.

A line form the film saysHit em far and straight, dear.

The real-life Hogan did that. Did he ever.
