This is an actual contestant badge from the 1953 US Open, which was won by Ben Hogan at Oakmont Country Club. 157 golfers competed in the 1953 US Open, and this player pin was issued to one of those golfers. Surely only a handful of these player pins remain from that historic Ben Hogan victory. Ben Hogan was in the midst of his magical 1953 season when he won all 3 Majors that he entered.
