Snead a Lift

On this day in 1939, Sam Snead boarded the RMS Queen Mary on his way to the British Open, which was to be played on the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. He and Henry Cotton were the favorites to win the tourney, but instead Dick Burton took the title. Snead would win the British Open only once in his career, in 1946.
