Golf has had its share of interesting characters over the years. Walter Hagen was the first, Champagne Tony Lema, the always-dapper Doug Sanders, flamboyant Chi Chi Rodriguez and talkative Lee Trevino, just to name a few.
Mac O’Grady is another blast from the past who played in 239 events on the PGA Tour in the 70’s and 80’s. He was best known for his eccentric behavior and Zen-like approach to his golf game. O’Grady perpetuated a running feud with then-PGA Commissioner Deane Beman, went through Q-School 17 times before he earned his PGA Tour card and finished his playing career with two wins and 18 top-10s.
Another name that could be included on this list is retired tour professional and current NBC golf announcer Roger Maltbie, who once lost his first-place check during a post-tournament celebration. Roger knows how to have a good time.
