Colonial Country Club: Profile Of Hogan’s Alley, Home Of The Horrible Horseshoe

(CBS DFW) — Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, Texas’s gem of a course, holds a distinct honor. It hosts the longest-running PGA Tour event to take place at the same site, majors aside. Last year Colonial enjoyed another distinction, when it welcomed the Tour back from its three-month, COVID-19-induced hiatus. The event, which changed its name to the Charles Schwab Challenge two years ago, dates back 75 years. In 1946, Ben Hogan shot 1-under par to win the first by one stroke. Hogan triumphed fi...

Ben Hogan Edge EX Irons: The $800 Hook

The new Ben Hogan Edge EX irons are something of a unicorn in the game improvement arena. There’s a growing trend in the GI category of calling an iron “forged” when, in fact, only the body is forged. The face, which actually hits the ball, is high-strength HT1770 steel or something similar. There’s a reason for that (which we’ll discuss later) but semantics are semantics. The new Hogan Edge EX, however, is bass-ackwards. The face and hosel is a single 1025 forging while the frame is investment-...

BOOK EXCERPT: How Ben Hogan Survived a Head-On Collision With a Greyhound Bus

Thankfully, perhaps miraculously, Tiger Woods survived a horrific car accident on Tuesday and has come through surgeries that saved his leg and much more. We've been told he is "in good spirits." A long recovery begins. The last few days there has been a lot of interest in (and comparison to) Ben Hogan and his head-on collision with a bus 72 years ago. I wrote about it in my book THE LONGEST SHOT. Here's an excerpt. January 10, 1949 ON FEBRUARY 2, 1949, GROUNDHOG DAY, Ben Hogan ...

Alexander: Can Sam Burns seal the deal at Riviera?

Sam Burns has been in this spot before, twice this season alone. Maybe it will help this weekend. The 24-year-old who starred at LSU had the 36-hole lead in the season-opening Safeway Open in Napa last September, two shots ahead at 15-under-par. He finished tied for seventh. He had the 54-hole lead eight weeks later in Houston, leading by a shot at 9-under at a venue a little less than four hours driving time from his hometown of Shreveport, La. He started the final round with a bogey and double...

Riviera Country Club Profile: ‘It’s A Special Golf Course, It Means A Lot To The Players’ Says CBS’ Ian Baker-Finch

(CBS Los Angeles)- The PGA Tour wraps up its West Coast swing this weekend with a trip to one of the tour’s longest-running courses, Riviera Country Club, for the Genesis Invitational. Opened in 1927, Riviera, designed by George C. Thomas, is a shot-making challenge with its numerous doglegs and tilted greens. Ben Hogan won the 1948 U.S. Open and two L.A. Opens in a span of 18 months, thus it is called “Hogan’s Alley.” Today the par-71 layout measures 7,322 yards. The famed layout in Pacific Pal...
