In 1995, Colonial Country Club wanted to raise money to commission a lifesize Ben Hogan bronze statue to be forever displayed at Colonial. To raise these funds, donations were solicited, and donors were rewarded with their own small version of the iconic Ben Hogan statue. Only 200 of these Ben Hogan bronze statues were produced. Offered here is #164 of 200. Included is an actual signed letter from Ben Hogan himself thanking the donor for contributing. With that letter is a photo of Ben Hogan posing with one of the 200 bronzes produced. Almost all of these bronzes ended up with Colonial Country Club members. They are rarely seen in the collector market.

15" tall, weighs 13.5 pounds. The bronze comes on the original metal turntable that allows you to easily view all sides of the piece.
