1997: Ben Hogan, considered one of the greatest players in the history of golf, dies at age 84 in Fort Worth, Texas. His nine career professional major championships tie him for fourth all-time, trailing only Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Walter Hagen. He's pictured here during his homecoming parade in New York City after his victory at the 1953 British Open.
