Overview

More than 150,000 Copies Sold in the I Remember Series Ageless Sam Snead made golf look easy with his silky-smooth swing, and he played the game at an elite level longer than any other golfer. His accomplishments were phenomenal: a PGA Tour record of eighty-one career victories, including Greensboro at age fifty-two; seven major championships, including three Master's titles and three PGA Championships; a round of 59 in 1959 at age forty-six; and induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Snead was perhaps the sport's most graceful and limber champion. Together with Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, who also were born in 1912, Snead formed what arguably was golf's greatest triumvirate of competitors. These three men nearly dominated golf for much of the 1940s and well into the 1950s. Even past the age of seventy, Snead battled his way onto leader boards against men a generation younger than he. He was a star attraction for many years on a Senior PGA Tour he helped pioneer. When Snead passed away in May 2002, he left behind a life filled with stirring accomplishments as well as stunning heart-breaks. I Remember Sam Snead includes detailed reminiscences of Slammin's Sammy" as told by dozens of the players and people who knew him, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Fuzzy Zoeller, early tour days traveling companion Johnny Bulla, and many other friends and golf writers."
