He won only a handful of PGA Tours during his early career, but his flamboyant victory dances made him a crowd favorite.
He was born into an impoverished farming family and began helping them out on the fields at an early age.
He had a brief encounter with Mother Teresa that inspired him to do his part to help others; as a result, he started a foundation to help children in need.
