Follow our live stories the first part of the Masters
The Masters, who begin Thursday, fail to deliver a memorable shot, which emits a shout out from the Augusta National Golf Club.
This year will no doubt provide more shots that fall into that category with the most powerful roar. He will return at 9 a.m. on Sunday, when, as the saying goes, the race begins.
Here are 10 examples, in chronological order, of the exciting shooting of the players who left with the title – and, since 1949, the green jacket they coveted.
1935: Gene Sarazen
There is no movie that is better than all of them. It’s a pity.
The officers were not known as Lord then; was the Augusta National Invitation Tournament and in its second year only.
In the final round, Sarazen was trailing Craig Wood with three whips. At number 15, paragraph 5, Sarazen hit 4 pieces of wood from about 230 yards away. The ball fell into the cup of an amazing eagle. As such, he was arrested by Wood.
Sarazen beat Wood with a shot five times the next day in a 36-hole competition.
1960: Arnold Palmer
After making a long birdie putt at No. 17 to tie up Ken Venturi, who finished the game, Palmer needed another bird in the final hole to take his second Masters title in three years.
The work is done.
He nailed a 6-foot lead from the fairway to a five-foot pin and then turned the putt.
Palmer won again at Augusta National in 1962 and in 1964, winning the last of its seven titles.
1975: Jack Nicklaus
His Tee that he shot at No. 16, paragraph 3, in the final race was not what he expected, with the ball resting about 40 feet from the cup. He could, perhaps, find his team, but still pursue the leader, Tom Weiskopf, with a gun.
Forget about paragraphs.
Nicklaus knocked on the birdie hill, hoisting his hook to celebrate. After Weiskopf and Johnny Miller missed their bird experiments at the age of 18, Nicklaus won his fifth green jacket.
1986: Jack Nicklaus
Nicklaus, 46, was running abruptly on Sunday when he was hit by a second shot at risk / prize 15th hole.
His risk was worth the reward.
From a distance of 202 yards, he hit a 4-foot-high pole in the pool up to 12 meters from the pin.
He turned the eagle and followed with the birds at 16 and 17 to overcome a stroke. For Nicklaus, who shot the final 65 (30 behind nine), it was his sixth Masters and 18th title, as well as a final, big race.
1987: Larry Mize
When the race for death suddenly began, Mize was not loved. His opponents were Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros, the future Hall of Famers.
However it was Mize, a native of Augusta, who passed, passing from a distance of 140 meters at No. Ballesteros, in search of his third green jacket, came out after bogey in the first hole of the playoff.
Mize won only two PGA Tour competitions.
1988: Sandy Lyle
After hitting his car at No. 18 to enter the basement, Lyle needed par to go to the playoffs with Mark Calcavecchia, a former clubhouse.
From a distance of 150 yards, Lyle, who had not seen the flag, hit a clear 7th ball, the ball coming down the hill to stand about 10 feet from the pin.
Lyle, from Scotland, made the birdie putt the first player in the United Kingdom to win a Masters.
1998: Mark O’Meara
The race seemed to be the first to die suddenly since 1990.
O’Meara, who was arrested by David Duval and Fred Couples, formed a line of 20-foot birdie putt in the final hole.
There would be no playplay.
O’Meara, who started shooting more often, won his first title. He won his second major a few months later in the British Open.
2004: Phil Mickelson
Undoubtedly, the 6-iron Mickelson from pine grass at No.
Arrested by Ernie Els, Mickelson hit his way up to 18 feet from the pit. Succeeding seems to be very possible, and like O’Meara in 1998, Mickelson, 33, was looking for his first victory. He finished second three times.
Jim Nantz, an CBS anchor, said the ball was moving in the right direction.
“Is it time for it? … Yes. ”
2005: Tiger Woods
Leading up to the final with just one, Woods was in trouble after the 8-iron at No. 16 missed green on the left. He had to straighten about 25 feet from the cup to hold the slope in good position.
He found the perfect spot, and the ball landed on the edge of the cup for a second or two before miraculously falling.
Woods got his fourth green jacket in the first round against Chris DiMarco.
2012: Bubba Watson
Watson, in the second round of the playoffs against Louis Oosthuizen, shot his ball into the pine straw to the right.
Pros: Oosthuizen. Not for long.
Watson was able to pull his shot to within 15 feet from the cup. Finishing with a section, he won his two Masters titles while Oosthuizen made a bogey.
“As a runner, like a golfer,” Watson told reporters at the time, “this is Mecca. This is what we are trying to do – wearing a green jacket.”
