Mr. Hogan

Mr. Hogan

The Man I Knew
A non fiction book by

An accomplished LPGA player recalls her days as an unlikely student of a living legend and the priceless lessons he taught her.

As a collegiate golfer in the 1980s, rising star Kris Tschetter was fortunate enough to gain membership at Shady Oaks, one of the best courses in Texas, where Ben Hogan was a member. There was an unwritten rule at the club: Don't bother Mr. Hogan. But when the master of the game observed Tschetter's constant presence on the driving range, he offered to help her with her swing. And a unique friendship began.

Despite Hogan's enigmatic reputation, Tschetter reveals a very different side to golf's elder statesman. On the links, he began to recall some of his fondest memories, telling his new student about his fifty-year romance with his wife, Valerie, and sharing other poignant details about his life. After Tschetter turned pro, Hogan came out to watch her play at Fort Worth's Colonial Country Club-the last professional round he watched in person. Mr. Hogan, the Man I Knew is a stirring memoir of a champion's final chapter and a friendship between two very different people who shared the same passion.
