Sam Snead

    Majors won: 7 (1949, 1952 & 1954 Masters; 1946 Open Championship; 1942, 1949 & 1951 PGA Championship)

PGA Tour victories: 82 (first all time)

Notes: The only major that eluded Snead was the U.S. Open... where he agonizingly finished second four times. The owner of what many considered to be a "perfect golf swing" Snead remains the PGA Tour's oldest winner, capturing the 1965 Greater Greensboro Open at 52 years, 10 months and 8 days. He's the oldest player to make the cut at a major: age 67 years, 2 months, 7 days at the 1979 PGA Championship; the first PGA Tour player to shoot his age: 67 in the second round of the 1979 Quad Cities Open; and the only player to post a top-10 finish in at least one major championship in five different decades.
