Winner of 11 PGA Tours who received a mysterious nickname, Mr.X, for equally mysterious reasons.
He turned pro four years after graduation from the University of Arkansas.
His nickname had a few different explanations for its origin: the first was it came from his long drives that outdistanced just about everybody else, while the other claims it came from his reputation as a ladies' man.
He was a noted bachelor and didn't settle down to marry until age 39. He had two sons: Richard and Larry.
He was known for his unorthodox swing, but like Jim Furyk, he achieved a lot of success with it.
