Fred Hawkins and Ben Hogan Face Off
Thanks to reader George McDowell for forwarding me the above photo of Fred Hawkins and Ben Hogan prior to their 18-hole playoff at the 1959 Colonial National Invitation Tournament in Fort Worth, Texas.
Hogan won with a 69. Hawkins shot 73. It was Hogan's last victory on the PGA Tour and fifth Colonial title.
