Not sure if any of you have heard this one before, but a PGA pro buddy told this story to us back in the day.

Hogan was playing an exhibition type match with this young guy. Not sure if Hogan's opponent was a Pro on an Amateur, but he was a major gun.. as the crowd was in disbelief as Hogan went about 2 or 3 down after about 6 or 7 holes they come to a long par 3. Hogan is hitting second. His opponent hits a long iron in there about 8 feet from the flag and the crowd starts to go a little crazy. Hogan steps up with either a 1 iron or 2 iron and as he makes contact with the ball and it flies off the club face, Ben looks directly at the kid and says "Your away". Can you guess who ends up winning the match? Yep..
