The remarkable story of legendary golfer Ben Hogan is related in Follow the Sun, a biographical film starring Glenn Ford as Hogan with Anne Baxter as his inspirational wife.
Growing up in Texas, young Ben Hogan helps to supplement his family’s income by working as a golf caddy. Having considerable talent, Hogan is encouraged by his wife to take up golf as a career, with early mixed results. His career interrupted by World War II, Hogan returns from his military stint a motivated golfer, soon becoming one of the sport’s best. His success is tempered by his analytical, cold approach however, and it’s not until he’s seriously injured in a car crash that he makes peace with the softer side of his personality, going on to become one of the true legends of the game.
