My Partner, Ben Hogan is the informal and amusing saga of one of the greatest golfers of all time as told by one of his best friends (and golfdom's most splendid dresser), Jimmy Demaret. Hogan's life, says Demaret, is "a ready made movie script with more natural schmaltz than even the cleverest writers and publicity men could cook up."
