Hale Irwin had 20 victories on the PGA Tour beginning with the 1971 Sea Pines Heritage Classic and finishing with the 1994 MCI Heritage Golf Classic, and won prize money of just under six million dollars.
His 1994 Heritage win at the age of nearly 49 made him one of the oldest winners in Tour history.
He also won two Piccadilly World Match Play Championships at Wentworth in the 1970s. His successes kept him ranked high among his peers - he was ranked among the top five in Official World Golf Rankings for a few weeks in 1991.
Irwin was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1992.
