Billy Casper, PGA

The "magnificent fourth" in an era of the "big three"

Born in San Diego and raised in Chula Vista, Casper was the winner of 51 PGA Tour events and considered by many to be the “magnificent fourth” in an era of the “big three.” He attended Notre Dame but found little success on the amateur golf circuit. However, upon turning professional in 1954, he quietly and steadily built a stellar, and memorable, Hall-of-Fame career that remains one for the record books. Included in the 51 tour wins are three majors: the 1959 and 1966 U.S. Opens, and the 1970 Masters. Since retirement, his charitable contributions are numerous, with a focus on investing in the future of America—our children.
