Winner of 39 PGA Tournaments, Gene Sarazen was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.
Sarazen hit "The shot heard 'round the world" in the 1935 Masters. It was a final round 225-yard 4-wood on the par-5 15th hole that went in, giving him a very rare double eagle 2 on the hole. It led to him later winning the tournament in a playoff.
For many years after his retirement, Sarazen was a familiar figure as an honorary starter at the Masters.
