*"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses,
for you only get to play one round." -- Ben Hogan
Sunday, Feb. 2, marked 65 years since Hogan was driving with his wife, Valerie, on a highway near Van Horn, Texas, and their car was hit head-on by a Greyhound bus. Despite suffering near-fatal injuries, Ben eventually resumed his pro golf career, winning six more of his nine career major titles.
