World Hall of Fame golfer who was one of the best players in the 1930s.
He started with the PGA in the early 1930s, then gave up the game out of frustration, only to return a few years later.
He published a golf manual around 1940, which some believe caused him to become self-conscious about his swing and lose it.
He grew up around Dallas, Texas.
He was born a year apart from another Texas golf great, Ben Hogan.
