CARNOUSTIE, Scotland, July 10-(P)--Ben Hogan, golf's living
legend, won the British Open championship on his first try today,
shooting a record 68 on the last round for a 72-hole score of 282.
4He had rounds of 73-71-70-68. His total was the second lowest
in the tourney's history.
THE WIRY TEXAN won with a fantastic finish such as has
marked his many triumphs in America.
Starting the day two strokes back of Britons Eric Brown and
Dai Rees, he collared the field with a morning round of 70 and
then came home with a parade of birdies, as his international
He finished four strokes .ahead of Amateur Frank Stranahan of
Toledo, O.; Dai Rees, diminutive Welshman; Australia's Peter Thom-
son, runnerup to Bobby Locke last year, and Antonio Cerdos, of
IN HIS TRIUMPH, Hogan completed a 1953 grand slam com-
parable to the four-tournament sweep by Atlanta's Bob Jones, who
won the British amateur and open and the U. S. amateur and open
He won the Masters tournament this spring at Augusta, Ga.,
with a record score and then captured lis fourth U. S. open at
Oakmont, thus tying the winning records of Willie Anderson and
On his last round, Hogan rang in four birdies, one of them a 35-
foot chip shot from off the green on the par four fifth.
PLAYING GRIMLY and mechanically, smoking cigarete chain-
fashion, the Texas shotmaker also had birdies on the sixth, thirteenth
On the par five 567-yard sixth, the Texan walloped a drive
300 yards down the middyp. His approach fell 80 yards from the
pin. He chopped within three feet of the hole and sank the putt.
This was one of his great holes of the day. He was driving with
amazing power throughout the round.
* * * *
ON THE 167-YARD thirteenth, Hogan laid his tee shot 12 feet
from the pin and he calmly canned it for his birdie deuce. With a
huge, milling crowd of more than 15,000 looking on, Hogan finished
dramatically on the 503-yard par five eighteenth hole.
He reached the green with his second shot and two-putted
from 35 feet.
Towards the end of his 36 holes today, the determined Texan
showed definite signs of strain. He was limping noticeably down the
seventeenth and eighteenth fairways.
HE WAS VERY pale under his tan when he walked off the last
green. With a wan smile on his face, Hogan repeated "I feel good, but
so very tired.
His last round 68 broke the Carnoustie course record of 69,
set 20 years ago by Horton Smith and tied during this tournament
by Argentina's Antonio Cerda and Frank Stranahan.
. . . fantastic finish

Is Fifth in Six
Ben Hogan's victory in the British
Open golf championship yester-
day was his fifth triumph in six
major tournaments this year.
His only defeat was in the
Greenbrier Open at White Sulphur
Springs, W. Va., when he finished
in a tie for third. Sammy Snead
won that tournament.
HOGAN'S other victories this
April 12, won his second Mas-
ters tournament at Augusta,
Ga., with a tourney record
score of 274, five strokes under
the old mark.
May 3, won the Pan-American
Open at Mexico City witi 286.
May 24, won the Colonial In-
vitation tournament at Ft.
Worth with 282.
June 13, won his fourth U. S.
Open championship at Oakmont,
Pa., with course record score of
283. Old competitive record was

HE IS TRIM and tight-lipped.
He never sees anything or any-
body, they say, except the fair-
way and the pin. You can almost
see the wheels grinding away in
his head as he makes shot after
shot with unbelievable precision.
He is a chain-smoker. He
puffs away perpetually on a cig-
arette held in an incongruous
black holder. When he hits, he
gives the holder to his caddy to
hold. He drops half-smoked
butts-along with birdie putts--
on almost every green.

ning the Masters this spring with
a record score of 274, "is 20 per

In 1949, he was almost killed
in an automobile-bus accident
which left his legs badly maimed.
Some said then he might never
walk again, much less play.
But a year later he came back.
Playing on battered legs which
had to be strapped up at night,
he won his second National Open
in 1950. Then in the spring of
1951 he won the Masters, and later
the Open again.
THERE ARE some who have

DETROIT - (A) - The Detroit
Tigers yesterday took another step
in rebuilding their mound staff
with the purchase, via the waiver
route, of veteran Brooklyn Dodger
hurler Ralph T. Branca.
The 27 year old right-hander
will join the Tigers here today.
Branca, a six-foot-three inch hurl-
er, broke into organized baseball
in 1943. He made a brief appear-
ance with the Dodgers in 1944 be-
fore being farmed out.
IN HIS FIRST full year with the
Dodgers in 1945, Branca posted a
5-6 record. His best year with the
Dodgers was 1947 when he won 21
games and lost 12.
Branca has appeared in seven
games this year for the National
League leaders without being
credited with either a win or a
His lifetime record stands at 80
wins and 58 losses. The veteran
Dodger moundsman has an earned
run average of 3:66 over his nine
year National League career.
