Golfer
    (October 29, 1961- )
    Born in Hillsborough, California
    Youngest child of Bing Crosby
    Won the US Amateur Championship (1982)
    Hosted the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am Tournament (1978-85)
    He appeared in several of his father’s Christmas specials, where he demonstrated that he had not inherited his dad’s singing and acting talents.
    Golf writer Herbert Warren Wind claimed, ‘His swing was so unimpressive that most observers felt there had to be at least a thousand better amateur golfers in the country.’
    He said that after his US Amateurs win, ‘I thought that meant I was going to be Jack Nicklaus, then a dose of sobriety hit me very quickly.’
    He finished in the top ten of a pro golf event only once (third at the 1985 Portuguese Open).
    He took up golf to get closer to his father, a golf fanatic and distant dad.
    He was a member of the victorious Walker Cup team (1983).
    After retiring from playing, he became president of the equipment manufacturer Tony Penna and formed his own real estate and golf development company.
