Friday Throwback

After seeing the American Golfer collection from RL Polo Golf on Wednesday, I have found myself spending inordinate amounts of time online, reading about golfing legends from the first half of the 20th century. My favorite of the bunch is and always will be the opulent Walter Hagen - one of golf's great dandies. So this Friday Throwback is dedicated to him. 

"The Haig" was:

first athlete to earn $1 million playing a sport. 
The first American to win the British Open. 
The first sportsman named to the list of Best Dressed Americans.
"The first to grab the check
The last to leave the party..."

Enough said.
