I was just looking at some videos and clinics on great ball strikers and was looking at Moe Norman videos. He was labeled as one of the best ball strikers of all time. Then I ran up on this thing about an african america golfer in the 80s named Calvin Peete. Did you guys know he held the driving accuracy record on the PGA for 10 years? Also, I think he won a PGA Championship and was called "Deadly" from 150 yards and in. I think he had like 12 PGA wins if the article I read was correct. If that is true why isn't this guy ever mentioned? I have been following golf for many years and I don't think I ever heard his name before. Meanwhile we are hyping up players on the European tour that have a few wins there but have never even won a PGA event or if they have it's like 1 or 2 but this guys has 12?
Are we forgetting the golfers of old or are won only remembering the ones who won majors? As I said before, I don't know anything about this golfer other than what I just read and I just wanted to ask you guys because I'm sure somebody on this board probably knows his history.
