Sergio Garcia apologized to Tiger Woods for saying he would serve fried chicken if they were to have dinner at the U.S. Open, an ugly addition to nearly two weeks of verbal sparring.
Hogan’s Alley is in the spotlight this week as the PGA Tour heads to Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, for the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Colonial Country Club honors the history of the game with its Wall of Champions located by the first tee. The wall features the names, scores and dates of past champions. One of the names you will find on the wall is Ben Hogan. In fact, you’ll see Hogan’s name more than once. He won here five times including the inaugural year in 1946. Colonial has since become known as “Hogan’s Alley.”
Many of today’s players would like to see their names listed as many times as Hogan’s, but no one has come close to his record.
Defending champion Zach Johnson is a member of an elite group of past champions who have won this event twice. A third win would place him in a category by himself. Nobody but Hogan has won this title more than twice.

Roger Chapman is in the spotlight at the Senior PGA Championship, a year after his breakthrough victory in the major championship.
Before Sergio Garcia’s racially insensitive remarks at the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night, the golfer had already made a series of imprudent decisions.
He made comments about Tiger Woods pulling a club during his backswing, causing a commotion, which led to an errant shot at The Players Championship. The notoriously malcontent golfer then suggested that Woods had done it on purpose and indicated that he didn’t particularly care for the world’s No. 1-ranked player.
Never one to let sleeping dogs lie or bite his own wagging tongue, Garcia, in a press conference earlier this week, suggested that Woods is a liar, generally impugned his character, and reiterated that the golfer is unlikely to be receiving a Christmas card from the Garcia family.
What began as a difference of opinion or perspective between two of the game’s best has turned into a mess worse than Garcia’s play at the 17th hole at Sawgrass nearly two weeks ago.
