@Froglaw likely calling to mind that Hogan won his first pro title at Pinehurst at the 1940 North & South. He opened with 66-67 to lead by 7, then held on for dear life. Said Valerie Hogan, "Ben always said the only way he would win his first title would be to get so far out in front of the field that nobody could catch him on the final day."

It opened the floodgates. Hogan won the next two weeks as well on his way to that year's money and scoring titles.
