The inventor of the modern sand wedge and one of the most dominant golfers of any generation, Gene Sarazan set the standard for excellence in golf and was the first player to win all four Grand Slam titles: the US Open 1922, the Professional Golfers' Association championship (PGA) 1922, the British Open 1932, and the Masters 1935. Sarazan’s master’s victory in 1935 remains one of sports greatest comebacks. Just as baseball has Bobby Thompson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round The World,” golf’s version of the “Shot Heard ‘Round The World” stems from Sarazn’s 1935 win at Augusta, where one shot catapulted The Masters to what is considered to be the most famous, and prestigious, tournament in the world. Trailing Craig Wood by three strokes with four holes remaining, Sarazen holed a 235-yarder with a 4-wood on No. 15 for an incredible double-eagle 2. Sarazen tied Wood in regulation and then bested him in a playoff. So, why not consider this Sarazan for your collection. If nothing else, it might help your golf game . . . along with a little practice.
