About Gay Brewer
Winner of 10 PGA Tours and the 1967 Masters Tournament. He also added 7 more wins on other professional circuits including the Champions Tour.
His high school coach had doubts about taking him on the team, but Brewer persuaded him by knocking three balls within a couple feet of the hole on a par-3 course.
The golf course where he trained was renamed Gay Brewer Jr. Course at Picadome in his honor.
He had two daughters with his wife Carole Lee Collins.
Like Brewer, Jim Furyk had a rather unorthodox swing, which seemed to help his game rather than hamper it.
