Larry Mize played for many years on the PGA Tour and currently plays on the Champions Tour.
He is well known for a career-defining shot – chipping in from 140 feet at the 11th hole at Augusta to win the playoff for the 1987 Masters Tournament.
He finished in the top 125 on the money list (the level needed to retain tour membership) for 20 seasons – 1982 to 2001.
His first PGA Tour win was the 1983 Danny Thomas Memphis Classic. Mize also won four international events and played for the U.S. teams in the Ryder Cup in 1987 and the Dunhill Cup in 2000.
For many years, Mize and Coca-Cola sponsored a successful charity golf tournament to benefit cystic fibrosis held at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
