Credited with popularizing professional golf during the late 1950s and 1960s, his large and enthusiastic following of fans became known as "Arnie's Army". "Slammin' Sammy" SAM SNEAD (1912-2002) won both the Masters and the PGA three times and the British Open once. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1953.
