Ben Hogan taught literally thousand of golfers to golf better with his classic book and this biopic is a typical sports biopic - we see the beginning, the winning, the terrible car accident, and the inspiring ending and I for one still enjoy this as one good sports movie.
Yes it is cheesy in places and no the acting isn't brilliant - but it does capture something of that essence of what it takes to be a champion and on that basis alone it's worth catching when it's on.
All in all, it's nowhere as slick as The Greatest Game, but it has heart, plenty of golf, some nice cameos from the real players of the time, and as I say, it's simply a good enjoyable sport biopic.
