Howard Johnson

Howard "Howie" Johnson had a distinguished competitive career in amateur and professional circuits. He won twice on the PGA Tour, including beating future World Golf Hall of Famer Arnold Palmer just one week before Palmer would win his first professional major – the 1958 Masters Tournament. Johnson would survive the cut on the PGA Tour 389 times out of 403 attempts, a 96 percent success rate, while cracking the top-ten 41 times before his regular tour career came to a close in 1974. He would play on the PGA Champions Tour from 1980 to 1995, and more than double his career tour earnings.
