The last living man who participated in the 1934 Masters died Wednesday at the age of 103.

Errie Ball finished 23rd in that first Masters which was won by Horton Smith with a score of 284.

"The PGA of America is saddened by the passing of Errie Ball, a professional in all aspects of life," said PGA of America President Ted Bishop. "Errie's amazing career spans the legends of the game -- from Harry Vardon through Tiger Woods. His longevity, according to those who knew him best, was founded upon a love of people."

Ball was born in Wales and competed in the British Open in 1926 at the age of 15.

And you guys think Jordan Spieth is impressive.
