In a career filled with accomplishments, Ben Hogan 
truly had a banner year in 1953. Hogan won five of
the six tournaments he entered, including three
major championships - the Masters,
the U.S. Open and the British Open. Hogan was unable
to compete
in the 1953 PGA Championship as the British Open dates
overlapped the PGA Championship dates. Hogan's feat,
known as the Triple Crown of Golf still stands among
the greatest single seasons
in the history of professional golf.
