Half of the current Top 10 golfers in the PGA Tour today are Americans, including #1 Dustin Johnson and #3 Jordan Spieth. But while they are excellent golfers, none of them possess the star quality of Woods or Palmer that makes us watch TV on Sundays. Golf is still looking for its next American superstar and until then, it’s going to be in the back end of the Top 10.
Sometimes a game can seem like it never ends. The last two minutes of a game can take thirty minutes in real life minutes, but the game usually ends in regulation and occasionally goes into overtime. But on January 6, 1951 it seemed like a game between the Indianapolis Olympians and Rochester Royals would never end.
The scandal involved 22 different schools and 37 players, but Hawkins was not implicated. The scandal mostly focused on players associated with Jack Molinas, who had escaped the CCNY betting scandal a decade and a half earlier. Hawkins, growing up in New York City, knew many of the players involved and had borrowed $2,000 for school expenses from Jack Molinas, but Hawkins brother had paid Molinas back before the scandal erupted.
