Call things by their right names ... Glass of brandy and water! That is the current but not the appropriate name: ask for a glass of liquid fire and distilled damnation.

Julius Nicholas Boros

Julius Nicholas Boros (March 3, 1920 - May 28, 1994) was an American professional golfer.

Boros was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He won 18 PGA Tour events, including three major championships: the 1952 and 1963 U.S. Opens and the 1968 PGA Championship. He was the oldest player ever to win a major championship with his 1968 PGA Championship win at the age of 48 . He was a member of the Ryder Cup team in 1959, 1963, 1965 and 1967. He was PGA Player of Year in 1952 and 1963. His total career PGA Tour earnings were $1,004,861. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1982. Boros suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 74 on the golf course at the Coral Ridge Country Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Boros was also instrumental in starting the Senior PGA Tour in the late 1970s. While other players often walked around a hole and studied the green for several minutes before putting - sometimes from their knees, Boros is remembered for not wasting any time. He would walk up to ball and "just do it". He is also remembered for his catch phrase "swing easy, hit hard".

His son Guy Boros won on the PGA Tour in 1996 at the Greater Vancouver Open.
