Episode #69 is a fascinating show on one of golf's most mysterious debates - Did Ben Hogan win 5 US Opens and not 4? The story hinges on the designiation of the 1942 Hale America National Open, which was held in place of the canceled 1942 US Open. Some have fought for decades to declare this event a US Open while others have scoffed at the idea.
Author Peter May recently published a new book, "The Open Question: Ben Hogan and Golf's Most Enduring Controversey" joins us on the show to argue the case for Ben Hogan winning his 5th US Open.
Its a great interview which ends with my thoughts on the controversy.
