Ben Hogan was born in Dublin, Texas and the town has fallen in love with the history of one of the greatest ball strikers ever.  The Ben Hogan Museum in downtown Dublin is really a treasure of so much of Mr. Hogan's life.  One of the last amateur golf tournaments that Ben Hogan played was at a course just to the west of Dublin and it is now a cow pasture.  For many years, golfers from all over gather to play what is left of the course. It is a fund raiser for the museum.
