Although he only won one Masters title, Gene Sarazen is considered one of the legends of the tournament dating back to his double-eagle in the final round in 1935 that propelled him to a win.

That was the second Masters, and Sarazen's only victory, although he would go on to post two more top-five finishes over the next four years.

Above is a great photo of him hitting one of the ceremonial tee shots on April 5, 1990, which he did along with Byron Nelson and Sam Snead.

Sarazen was 88 at the time of this photo and still dressing as if he was playing in the 1935 Masters.

I love it.
