Nephew of the legendary Sam Snead, who passed away in 2002.
Was an excellent all-around athlete as a youngster, winning all-state honors in three sports. Spent nearly four years playing baseball in the Washington Senators' farm system before becoming a professional golfer in 1964.
Biggest thrill of his career was his first TOUR victory, in Tucson.
Lists Bob Knight and Ted Williams as his heroes.
Biggest thrill outside of golf was when Williams gave him a baseball glove at age 11.
Favorite golf course is Cypress Point.
Enjoys reading Louis L'Amour novels.
