Shell's Wonderful World of Golf: Snead vs. Hogan

It was a rare privilege and a splendid experience to see Ben Hogan and Sam Snead in head-to-head competition, however thatís what occurred at the Houston Country Club in 1964. For the first time in over 30 years, watching these titans of the game is now possible for golf fans with the video release of the classic Shellís Wonderful World of Golf match between Ben Hogan and Sam Snead. Staged in May 1964 at the Houston Country Club, it originally aired on February 21, 1965. This was a big match, even by Shell standards. The sponsor didnít invite reporters to cover the matches, but this one was so big, they made an exception. Famed New York sportswriter Red Smith was among the estimated 5,000 who showed up, according to producer Fred Raphael. The city of Houston rises from topography as flat as a skillet. The pancake-flat terrain of the Houston Country Club had been molded and shaped into dipping swales, doglegs, and elevated greens by the individualistic endeavors of its designer, Robert Trent Jones.
