SIDNEY BECKWITH CHEATED DEATH MANY TIMES in his 101 years. This remembrance by Adam Schupak for Golfweek is worth a full read.
Beckwith died on May 9 after a bout with cancer and complications that followed, but a photo in Schupak's story shows him putting at Greenwood Valley Country Club on March 5.
Beckwith's longevity produced an enviable record on the golf course, according to Schupak:
Beckwith was 72 when he first broke his age at Green Valley.
