Before Ben Hogan became a legend, he had to break a nine-year winless streak as a pro

Ben Hogan is famously attributed with saying the secret to golf was “in the dirt.” Ken Venturi also quoted Hogan as saying, “every day you miss practicing will take you one day longer to be good,” which seems a mathematical improbability, but the point is Hogan was arguably the hardest-working player in golf history.

Greg Norman: All I Know About Winning in Golf, Business and Life

The trek to Greg Norman’s getaway in northwest Colorado is a roundabout one. The retreat is tucked away in a remote, evergreen-covered corner of this rugged state, an area so isolated that GPS is little help. An unmarked dirt road runs from the highway to his front door, uncoiling like the rattlesnakes that lurk in the brush. Driving for some 30 minutes, you feel lost. Definitely lost. Then his Rocky Mountain Xanadu appears: a 14,000-square-foot “cabin,” two miles of fly-fishing nirvana, and
