# Former US golf player Doug Sanders, dies aged 86

Doug Sanders, a 20-time PGA TOUR winner perhaps known best for being a stylish and flamboyant dresser earning him the nickname, “the Peacock of the Fairways,” died today, April 12, in Houston, from natural causes at age 86.


In addition to his 20 PGA TOUR titles, Sanders will be remembered for all his close calls — 20 runner-up finishes, including four second-place performances at major championships — the 1959 PGA Championship, the 1961 U.S. Open, and the 1966 and 1970 Open Championships. In total, he had 13 top-10 finishes in major championships without recording a victory.
