ARNOLD PALMER, the first golfer to capture four Masters titles (1958, 1960, 1962, 1964), also competed in 19 international tours, including his wins at the British Open in 1961 and 1962. He had 60 wins on the PGA Tour and 10 more on the Senior Tour and made 48 consecutive Masters starts. Palmer was the first golfer to earn more than $1,000,000 in PGA tournament money. Credited with popularizing professional golf during the late 1950s and 1960s, his large and enthusiastic following of fans became known as "Arnie's Army". BEN CRENSHAW, a three-time collegiate golfer of the year and the winner of 19 PGA tournaments, including his first (the 1973 Texas Open) and the Masters in 1984 and 1995, was the Captain of the 1999 U.S. team that staged the greatest comeback in Ryder Cup history, winning 8½ points in singles matches on the final day to come from four points back to defeat the European team. Crenshaw joined the Senior PGA (now Champions) Tour in 2002. CHARLES COODY is best known for winning the Masters in 1971. He has had two other wins on the PGA Tour and three off-tour wins, and he was selected for the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1971. He has also played on the Senior PGA Tour, winning five times. BILLY CASPER, who joined the PGA Tour in 1955, had 51 tournament wins, including the U.S. Open (1959, 1966) and the Masters (1970), and was named PGA Player of the Year in 1966 and 1970. After joining the Senior Tour in 1982, Casper won nine tournaments, including the U.S. Senior Open (1983) and the Senior Players Championship (1988). Known for his excellent putting skills, Casper also won the Canadian Open (1967) and was on the U.S. Ryder Cup team eight times (he was non-playing team captain in 1979). Inducted in the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1978 and the PGA Hall of Fame in 1982, Casper is now involved with the design and management of golf courses across the U.S. FRED COUPLES, the winner of the 1992 Masters and holder of 14 PGA and five international titles. RAY FLOYD, who turned pro in 1961, racked up 22 PGA tour victories, including two PGA Championships (1969, 1982), the 1976 Masters and the 1986 U.S. Open. Floyd indeed ran away with the Masters in 1976, tying Jack Nicklaus' record of 17 strokes under par for the tournament and finishing 8 strokes ahead of runner up Ben Crenshaw. Since joining the Senior Tour in 1992, he has finished first in 14 events as of October 2002. CRAIG STADLER won the 1982 Masters. Golf champion TOM WATSON, who graduated from Stanford University in 1971 with a degree in psychology, joined the Professional Golfers Association tour in 1972. Named PGA Player of the Year six times, he won 39 PGA tournaments (1974-1998), including eight majors, before joining the PGA Senior (now Champions) Tour. Watson's wins include Masters titles in 1977 and 1981, the PGA Championship in 1980 and 1984, the U.S. Open in 1982 and the World Series of Golf in 1980.
