Gene Sarazen (Golf)

1932 U.S. Caramel

Gene Sarazen (born Eugenio Sarazeni, February 27, 1902 - May 13, 1999) is one of five players to win all four of the current PGA Tour Major championships, The Masters, The United States Open, the Open Championship (British Open) and the PGA Championship. Gene, alongside Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, was one of the great golfers of his era the 1920s and won his first two majors when he captured the 1922 U.S. Open and PGA Championships. Sarazen was an innovator of the game as well, introducing the sand iron, or the precursor to today’s sand wedge, at the 1932 British Open, which he won at Prince’s Golf Club in Sandwich, England. Bobby Thomson’s 1951 home run notwithstanding, Sarazen, too, hit “the shot heard ‘round the world” when he scored the extremely rare double eagle on the 15th hole at the 1935 Masters, hitting a 4-wood into the hole from 235-yards. Down by three at the time, he tied the leader Craig Wood, who he would eventually defeat in a 36-hole playoff to take the title. Sarazen’s 4-wood shot remains one of the most important and famous shots in PGA Tour history. Gene Sarazen would win 39 PGA tournaments including the 1932 Open Championship, the 1935 Masters, the 1922 and 1932 U.S. Open and the 1922, 1923 and 1933 PGA Championships. Gene Sarazen was inducted as an inaugural member of the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Gene was annually present at the opening of The Masters, with Byron Nelson and Sam Snead, as an honorary starter and was awarded the Bobby Jones Award recipient in 1992 in “recognition of his distinguished sportsmanship in golf.” In 2000, Golf Digest ranked Gene Sarazen as the 11th greatest golfer in history.
