Goalby will always be best known for his controversial 1968 Masters win, when Roberto De Vicenzo signed an incorrect scorecard to hand Goalby the green jacket. What many forget is that Goalby, a Belleville native, accomplished much more than a tainted Masters victory. He attended the University of Illinois, posted his first PGA Tour win in 1958, and won 11 times in all, with Greensboro, L.A., San Diego and the Heritage at Harbour Town among his finest moments. Also gotta give props to Luke Donald, the Englishman who was No. 1 in the world for nearly a year in 2011-’12. He attended Northwestern and keeps a home in suburban Chicago.
