"The Match" Reprise

Reenacting "The Match" to benefit The First Tee

October 2012

In 1956, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson battled amateurs Ken Venturi and Harvie Ward in a classic, record-breaking match that was later captured in the book, "The Match," by Mark Frost. Sixty years later the foursome of Davis Love III, Nick Watney, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler took to Cypress Point to reenact the famed four-ball.
