Ben Hogan

The “Hogan Slam” season

The “Open” win at Carnoustie was a part of Hogan’s watershed 1953 season.

He won five of the six tournaments he entered and the first three major championships of the year (a feat known as the “Hogan Slam”).
It still stands among the greatest single seasons in the history of professional golf.

Hogan was unable to enter, and possibly win, the 1953 PGA Championship (to complete the Grand Slam) because its play (July 1–7) overlapped the play of the British Open at Carnoustie (July 6–10), which he won. It was the only time a golfer won three major championships in a year until Tiger Woods matched the feat in 2000.
