Born September 24th in Edinburgh, Scotland, Libra Golf Legend Tommy Armour was considered to be one of golf's greatest statesman. His outgoing personality made him a favorite of his fellow pros and galleries alike. The Scotsman was known to play his best golf on the toughest courses and was considered one of the finest wood club players of all time.

Tommy ArmourIn 1927 Armour won the first U.S. Open played at Oakmont in a playoff with Harry Cooper, then the PGA in 1930 against Gene Sarazen (at match play) and the British Open at Carnoustie. Armour was nicknamed the Silver Scot by the golf press because of his graceful swing and distinguished gray hair.

Armour seemed to be unaffected by the pressure of a tournaments closing holes and performed his best when he was at or near the lead. An exceptional striker of the ball, Armour became one of the most successful golf instructors and golf club designers in the world after retiring from competitive golf. He was often described as having "a dash of indifference, a touch of class and a bit of majesty".

Armour was a great teacher who worked with both duffers and professionals using the same philosophies and techniques that were part of his best-selling book, How to Play Your Best Golf, All the Time. He may have been considered as a temperamental and complex man, but Armour was a "genius" at teaching people how to play their best golf.
