          He won the 1985 and 1986 Skins Game and in the process helped elevate the event to one of the most popular made-for-TV competitions in golf.

          Since joining The Champions Tour he has notched another major, the 2002 Senior PGA Championship.  He also won The 2002 Senior Slam Championship, The 2003 Tylenol Shoot Out Championship, The 2004 MasterCard Championship and The 2007 Senior Skins Game with playing partner Peter Jacobsen.

          In 1985, Fuzzy was awarded the prestigious Bobby Jones Award, an honor bestowed upon one player per year by the USGA.  Past winners include Francis Ouimet, Babe Zaharias, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Jack Nicklaus.
