Snead, byname Slammin’ Sam, (born May 27, 1912, near Hot Springs, Virginia, U.S.—died May 23, 2002, Hot Springs), American professional golfer who won 82 Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) tournaments and every major championship for which he was eligible—except the U.S. Open, in which he placed second four times.
Snead was noted for the longevity of his career, his agility, and his smooth, self-taught swing. He became a professional in 1933 and scored his first victory in the 1937 Oakland Open. He won the British Open (Open Championship; 1946), the Canadian Open (1938, 1940, 1941), and in the United States the Masters Tournament (1949, 1952, 1954), the PGA Championship (1942, 1949, 1951), and the Vardon Trophy (1938, 1949–50, 1955) for the best average number of strokes in PGA tournaments. He was a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team eight times (including 1969 when he captained the squad but did not play) and was a member of the winning World Cup teams in 1956, 1960, 1961, and 1962, also winning the individual title in 1961. He won the PGA Seniors tournament in 1964, 1965, 1967, 1970, 1972, and 1973; the World Seniors Championship in 1964, 1965, 1970, 1972, and 1973; and the Legends of Golf tournament (with Gardner Dickinson) in 1978.
