    Acted/Instructed in 'How I Play Golf' shorts (1930s)
    In the 3rd Round of the 1921 British Open, he did not complete the 11th hole, withdrew from the tournament, and called the Open 'the most inglorious failure in golf'

    Well after his death, he still has a clothing line.
    He drank heavily during Prohibition.
    He supported the racist rule that black golfers could not play in the Open (until 1975).
    His own views on racism, however, were a mystery.
    He won an amazing 13 of 21 national championships that he entered.
    He is the only golfer to win the Grand Slam of golf (1930).
    He retired while on top, at age 28.
    During his heyday, he only played 80 rounds a year so he could spend more time with family and friends.
    He often called penalties on himself for minor rule infractions during tournaments.
    He declined a gift of $50,000 in 1928 to buy a house, due to his dedication of his amateur status.
    He never turned professional, despite beating the world's best in professional championships.
