Slammin' Sam Snead was a country boy from Virginia who had the smoothest swing on the PGA Tour and could hit the ball a mile for decades. Snead not only set course and tournament records left and right, he was so dominant for so long that he amassed over 165 professional wins, including 94 on the PGA Tour (if you dispute that fact, you are mistaken) ranging from 1936-65. Snead is hands down one of the greatest golfers to ever grace the course.
