128. Fred Funk, golf

He has lived life backward, becoming the coach at his alma mater (Maryland) before joining the pro ranks. Funk scored eight victories on the PGA Tour and has six on the Champions (Senior) Tour. One of golf's most accurate drivers, he became, at 49, the oldest ever to win The Players Championship in 2005. Two years later, he became the first to get a PGA win in Mexico.Getty Images
