SAM SNEAD was a prolific winner. Nicknamed “Slammin’ Sammy”, Snead was considered by many to have the perfect swing. The American must have made some sweet ones on the way to 165 professional wins. A dominant force in world golf for four decades, Snead was famed for his folksy image: wearing a straw hat, playing tournaments barefoot, and making such statements as, “Keep close count of your nickels and dimes, stay away from whiskey, and never concede a putt”. In 1950, the Virginian hammed it up 11 times on the PGA Tour. No one since has won more than nine times in one year. And to think, the sweet swinging Snead was self-taught.
