Yet despite all of this, Hogan left the hospital 59 days after the accident and began working on his return to golf that November. And on Jan. 6, 1950, less than a year after that tragic night in Texas, Hogan competed in the L.A. Open, losing to Sam Snead in an 18-hole playoff. And later that same year, at the Merion Golf Club, Hogan won the U.S. Open, the toughest tournament in golf.
