The greatest winner the game has ever seen, Sam Snead racked up an almost inconceivable amount of wins over his career. Only recently did Tiger Woods pull even with Snead in PGA Tour wins with 82.
Despite his dominance, Snead, aka "The Slammer," had the Phil Mickelson curse and couldn’t pull off a U.S. Open victory in his career and had five second-place finishes. That notwithstanding, his consistency set marks that aren’t likely to fall for some time.
He was the first player to win in six decades, the oldest player to win a PGA Tour event (52 years, 10 months) and oldest player to make the cut at a major championship (67 years, 2 months).
