Encyclopedia > Curtis Strange

Curtis Northrup Strange (born 1955) is a U.S. golfer. He is thought of as one of the leading golfers of the 1980’s as 16 of his 17 PGA Tour victories took place in that decade. He topped the PGA Tour money list in 1985 and 1987 and in 1988, when he became the first man to win a million dollars in official money on the Tour in a season. His two majors were the 1988 and 1989 U.S. Opens and at this point it seemed that Strange was on the verge of building a truly great career, but as things turned out he never won on the PGA Tour again.
