Julius Boros

Bridgeport
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: May 28, 1994
Fort Lauderdale

Professional Golfer. He turned pro at age 30 and became one of the tour's most consistent players. He was competitive on the PGA circuit until age 55 in 1975. He won a total of 15 PGA tour events, including the 1952 and 1963 U.S. Opens. In 1968, he was the oldest person to win a major tournament when he took the PGA Championship at age 48; he also won the Westchester Classic that same year. Julius Boros was gifted with a smooth, perfectly rhythmic swing. He didn't hit the ball far, but he was remarkably accurate. He died of a heart attack at age 74 while playing golf on his home course in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. (bio by: Anthony B)
