Professional Golfer and Broadcaster. He won 14 events on the PGA Tour, but his biggest accomplishment on the golf course came when he won the 1964 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. Despite scorching heat, he shot 66-70 on the final day of the tournament, marking the only major championship win of his career. After retiring from the Tour in 1967, he spent the next 35 years working as a color commentator and lead analyst for CBS Sports the longest such stint in sports broadcasting history. He retired from broadcasting in June 2002 and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2013. (bio by: Louis M.)
