60 Moments: Golfer Sam Snead

Sam Snead’s golf swing was almost like fine wine – it got better with age.

The strapping country boy from Hot Springs, Virginia made golf and The Greenbrier almost synonymous.

“Golf is the hardest of all sports to learn, and if you don’t have ability, you might as well go fishing,” said Snead.

Ability he had plenty of. He won a record 84 tournaments and 7 major championships, and was the holder of the most sought after golf swing of all time.
