Sam Snead

Slammin' Sammy Snead had one of the greatest swings ever, and thanks to video recording it will now live forever. He was one of those athletes that could have gone pro in a variety of sports. Some golfers have said that he would challenge new golfers on the tour to a push-up contest, even when he was 50 years old. He would get down and start cranking out push-ups on his fingertips. It was said that he was able to stretch one leg out to the top of a door frame! He was very athletic and it showed in his swing.

Some notable achievements from Sam Snead

- He won a record 82 PGA Tour events.

- He had 37 hole-in-ones

-He won seven majors

Here is his swing
