Carrying the Torch

Our Mission:

“The mission of the Ben Hogan Foundation is to honor and enhance the legacy of Mr. Hogan by promoting the game of golf through expansion of Ben Hogan Learning Centers in association with The First Tee and through college scholarships for students involved in The First Tee and Northern Texas PGA.”

Until 2006, a foundation honoring one of the most revered men ever to play the game of golf didn’t exist. But thanks to Ben Hogan’s niece, Lisa Scott, and a few other key professionals, the Ben Hogan Foundation finally came to be in August 2006. The Ben Hogan Foundation funds charities and programs that reflect his core values: qualities like self-determination, courage, a competitive spirit, integrity and hard work. The Foundation also supports his passions: golf and its influence on young people, education, and the well-being of children. Based in Fort Worth, Texas, the foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity, and is principally funded through contributions made by individuals and corporations seeking to support and preserve the courageous legacy of Ben Hogan.
