Fresh off winning three straight NCAA individual titles while at the University of Texas, the 21-year-old Crenshaw gave more credence to projections that he would become golf's next dominating player when he won the 1973 PGA Tour Q School, played over 144 holes, by 12 strokes. He then went out the next week and won his first tour event, the San Antonio Open, and was runner up in his second. The Austin native would go on to win 19 times on the PGA Tour, including two majors, and make the Hall of Fame, but in some quarters he remains an underachiever. Crenshaw himself is wistful when he recalls the unencumbered naturalness and seemingly limitless potential of his youth. "I didn't think," he says. "I just did."
