With a peek at their family backgrounds, the story shows both the hardships and joys of growing up and learning to golf in For1000t Worth, Texas, in the 1920s.

The two golf pros were not alike in personality- Hogan was always a quiet and private person, whereas Nelson had a reputation for being very friendly and open.

Follow these golfing stars from their early days in the sport to their successful pro careers, and meet the people behind the legends.
