These are the golfers you grew up watching. They made all of the tough shots, won the tournaments, and achieved National fame. How much do you actually know about them, though?
Golf has been around since the 15th century when it was played with sticks and pebbles in Scotland. Over the course of history, the sport developed and changed with the times. The first major national championship was played in Britain in 1860, and the three other major tournaments were added later. As tournaments formed and the sport developed, so did the golfers, and through the sport, many golfers have risen to National and even World fame, as their legacy continues even after their swing is long gone. These are the golfers you remember when you think about the longest putts in the toughest moments, the trophies year after year, and those backache commercials. These golfers seized imaginations with their endless ability to surprise. They are the greatest golfers the game has offered.
