1912: Ben Hogan, considered one of the greatest players in the history of golf, is born in Stephenville, Texas. His nine career professional major championships tie him for fourth all-time, trailing only Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Walter Hagen. He's pictured here during his homecoming parade in New York City after his victory at the 1953 British Open.
