whose nickname is "The Pymble Crusher."

today's golfers who start their careers in their teens, Nagle completed almost
six years in the Australian
military before and after World War II. From 1949 to 1975, he won
at least one tournament every year, with Gary
Player commenting that his short game was the "best out there." His long game was "crushing,"
hence the nickname.
1965 U.S. Open, he was pitted against Player in an 18-hole playoff.
Unfortunately, Nagle hit a woman
in the head on the fifth hole, and then another shot misfired, hitting
another spectator. That's how Player defeated
he was a lovely man, never remarrying or moving from the home that he and his
wife Jean lived in prior to her death in 1960.
died at age 94 on January 29, 2015, in his beloved Sydney. He is survived
by his four children and many grandchildren.
