Walter Hagen (1892-1969) won  two U.S. Opens (1914, 1919), four British Opens (1922, 1924, 1928-1929), five PGA Championships (1921, 1924-1927) and five Western Opens. Only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have won more major tournaments. A six-time U.S. Ryder Cup Captain, he retired with 40 PGA wins. When Hagen began play, many golf clubs did not allow professionals to enter by the front door. Hagen significantly enhanced the status of golf pros, probably becoming the first to person to earn a million in any sport. Hagen is portrayed by Bruce McGill in the movie The Legend of Bagger Vance.
