The Resume

    (May 27, 1912-May 23, 2002)
    Winner of a record 82 PGA Tour events, including 1949, 1952, 1954 Masters, 1942, 1949, 1951 PGA Championship, 1946 British Open
    Charter Member of World Golf Hall of Fame (1974)
    Known for his straw hat
    Nicknamed 'Slammin Sammy'

Why he might be annoying:

    At the Masters, he hit his ceremonial tee shot at a gallery member and broke his glasses (2002).
    He claimed to have won 165 tournaments worldwide, but it is often disputed by 'independent record keepers,' saying he only won 135.
    He never won the US Open, and finished 2nd 4 times.
    He imagined feeling 'oily' when he swung a golf club.
    On his way to the 1992 Masters, he got into a car wreck that left Roy Jeffers paralyzed, and he gave a $2 Million settlement.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is usually credited with having the sweetest swing in golf history.
    He was a self-taught golfer.
    He rarely practiced or spent time at the driving range.
    He kept his contributions to charities and schools private.
    He learned to golf by using tree limbs as clubs.
    He had an endorsement deal he kept with Wilson Sporting Goods that lasted from the late 1930s to well into the 1980s.
    He was the oldest player to win a PGA event (1965 Greater Greensboro Open at fifty-two)
    He is the youngest ever to shoot his age, then better it, at the 1979 Quad Cities Open (67, then 66)
    He died just four days short of his 90th birthday.
    He once said this about his success: 'I won a lot of tournaments because I was in better shape than other guys. I didn't smoke and didn't drink and went to bed at reasonable hours. I've never been drunk in my whole life.' (quoted from ESPN Classic profile)
