The dapper Gene Sarazen, born Eugenio Saraceni and called The Squire for his stylish wardrobe and courtly manners, introduced a new club of his own design, the sand wedge, at the 1932 British Open. Sarazen won 39 Tour titles including seven majors, and sank a fairway-wood shot for a double eagle on his way to the 1935 Masters title-the 235-yard four-wood that became famous as The Shot Heard 'Round the World.\n
