Ben Crane Personal Notes
Was age 5 when his grandfather taught him how to play golf.
Doesn't like to know who he will be paired with, 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. And so that's kind of been my routine. I never want to know who I'm playing with. Just tell me the time. In 2002, at the (HP) Byron Nelson (Championship) I played with Ernie Els in the final round, and it worked well because I watched Ernie play a lot of golf on TV. So we just kind of kept that routine going. I just never look and find out on the first tee.".
Took part in the 2008 BMW Northwest Charity Skins Game with host Ryan Moore, Aaron Baddeley and Bubba Watson to help raise funds for local charities in Washington.
Takes a leading role with his wife, Heather, in support of Love146, an international group dedicated to eradicating the sexual exploitation of children in Thailand, Cambodia and the Philippines.
Hosts "Day With the Pros" every year with Discovery Land Co., an endeavor which has raised more than $4 million for charity.
He is the mastermind behind the "Golf Boys" video that he stars in along with Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Watson.
