Ben Crane Biography
Ben Crane was born March 6, 1976 and is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour.
Crane was born in Portland, Oregon. He was age 5 when his grandfather taught him how to play golf, and he grew up playing at the nearby Portland Golf Club where Ben Hogan won the 1945 Portland Open. He graduated from Beaverton High School in 1994 and went on to attend a Christian College in Texas. He later graduated from the University of Oregon and turned professional in 1999. Crane won an event on the second tier Nationwide Tour in both 2000 and 2001.
Crane won a PGA Tour card for 2002, and the following season won for the first time on the PGA Tour at the BellSouth Classic. He also had a win in 2005. In February 2006, just before he turned thirty, he was the highest ranked American golfer under that age in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Crane has said that he does not like to know with whom he will be paired, saying, I looked up to a lot of these guys who I'm now playing with. So, I didn't want to have to go to sleep thinking about it.
Crane is also considered one of the slowest players in the tour. On at least two occasions his extremely slow progress through a course has become a media issue, including one in which a fellow tour player Rory Sabbatini played out of turn and then was cited for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Crane missed the majority of the 2007 season due to back problems, and played on the PGA Tour in 2008 on a major medical extension. He finished 64th on the money list to retain his card for 2009.
In January 2010, Crane carded a final-round 70 to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines by a single stroke. In October 2010, he won the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic Malaysia, an event co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour (but unofficial money) and Asian Tour.
