2002: Professional golfer Sam Snead, who was one of the top players in the world for most of four decades, dies at the age of 89 in Hot Springs, Virginia, following complications from a stroke. Snead won a record 82 PGA Tour events, including seven majors, during his career. A 1974 inductee of the World Golf Hall of Fame, he won three of the four majors at least once, with the exception of the U.S. Open, which he finished as runner-up four times.
