The bald community is surely well represented across all sports, but especially in golf. We’re glad to present to you a well-curated shortlist of some of the best bald golfers in history. The golfers below have transformed the sport’s history and have become role models to many golf fans worldwide. Without further ado, here is our take on some of history’s best bald golfers:
Bill comes from a family with a strong zest for the golf course. Jay Haas, his father, was remarkably sensational on the PGA Tour, winning the competition 9 times, while his great uncle Bob Goalby also fared well in the sport; he won the green jacket in 1968 and also played in 27 masters. The 34-year-old’s brother, Jay Haas Jr, and Jerry Haas, his uncle, are other players to have graced the golf scene from the Haas family.
Another top bald golfer is Matt Kuchar. The 38-year-old Olympic bronze medallist was close to winning a glittering new Cadillac after having a good outing at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China last year, but for a fine print. In the third round, Kuchar managed to get a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th. However, a player could only win the vehicle having shot from at least 200 yards away. The tournament organizers had to move the tee some meters more as the back tee was in a deteriorating condition. But this wasn’t going to be good news to Kuchar, as the hole was 193 yards and, thus, only agonizingly missed out on the 200 needed to hit a home run with the Cadillac.
Furyk is also no stranger in men’s professional golf; he consistently ranked in the top 10 between 1999 and 2015. That’s a staggering 16 years!
Cink’s remarkable picture above was shot during the 2014 Sony Open tournament in Hawaii.
Well, it turns out Cink also has an even more remarkable feat on the PGA Tour, netting a total $34,292,689 in a longwinded career that started in 1995.
Our final pick here is Danish golfer Thomas Bjorn, who, in 1997, qualified for a European Ryder Cup team. A feat that ensured he penned his name in history books as the first Danish golfer to make the cut.
Bjorn also has a soft spot for Liverpool FC. Not a bad bloke!
