Hogan made his name with his profound impact on golf swing theory and his incredible ball striking skills. He has over 69 professional wins and more than 50 awards under his name. In 1949, he suffered a head-on collision and career-threatening accident with a bus, and survived with multiple pelvic fractures, ankle fracture, chipped rib, and many injuries. Soon, by the end of the year, Hogan overcame every odd and regained his strength by extensive walking and got back into competitive golf. He went on to win events, too.
