First Golf Pro As A Media Star… Pop Culture History Sports

Mr. Pop History – Let’s face it, Tiger Woods isn’t the golf leader he once use to be. Way to many gaffe’s lately.

The first true media superstar of golf was Sam Snead. And, he had his own golf show – a syndicated TV feature back in the 1950′s titled, “The Sam Snead Show.”

The segments, five minutes each, showcased “Slammin’” Sammy Snead explaining the do’s and don’t's of the game. As far as I know – 39 of these features were produced.
