Frank Sinatra watches Ben Hogan win the 1953 Open at Carnoustie

Frank came over to perform at the Caird Hall in nearby Dundee at a time when his career had taken a nosedive. Less than 500 people filled the 2,000 seater Scottish hall. To take his mind off his lack of ticket sales he went off to watch Ben Hogan win the Open at Carnoustie. He was obviously inspired as one hard man watching another. Later that year Frank made the hit film From Here To Eternity, which won him a best actor Oscar and he was back on top again.
