Sam SneadBirth: May 27, 1912

Samuel Jackson "Sam" Snead was an American golfer who was one of the top players in the world for most of 4 decades. He and two others of the greatest golfers of all time, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, were born within six months of each other in 1912. He won a record 82 PGA Tour events and about 70 others worldwide. 

He won seven majors: three Masters, three PGA Championships and one British Open. Despite his great achievements, his reputation has always been slightly tainted by his failure to win a U.S. Open. Snead shares the record for most second-place finishes in that championship with four others; Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Phil Mickelson.

His nickname was "Slammin' Sammy." He has also been admired by many for having the so-called "perfect swing," and generated many imitators.

Death: May 23, 2002 (age 89)

He died in Hot Springs following complications from a stroke four days short of his 90th birthday.
