    that Big Lefty is so rich is at least partially due to SOCIALISM.

    At the end of WWII golf was still pretty much a rich man's endeavor. Most courses were private Country Clubs requiring considerable financial resources to join, maintain your membership and play.  

    Public golf courses, many a part of city, county and state parks systems, began to proliferate when I was a kid in the 50' and 60's.  The increased accessibility of Golf to the middle an working class, as would be expected, lead to a boom in the growth and popularity of the sport.

    Popularity = increased advertising and TV revenues which = larger purses for competitors. Big Lefty should be happy to pay taxes; they helped make him a rich man.
