That Tiger Chip-In (2005)
You will have all seen the clip.
Tiger Woods, dressed in his statement Sunday red, found himself left of the 16th green with what looks like a pretty simple chip. However, what TV doesn’t show is the huge slope towards the water. So, not only does Tiger aim 20 foot left of the hole but he also purposefully hits his chip long, allowing gravity to do the rest.
From here, two things stand out. First, the ball slowly trickling back down the slope towards the centre of the hole only to stop right on the edge for a couple of seconds, before eventually falling into the cup for a birdie. Second, the wild celebrations between Tiger and his caddie, the euphoria of the crowd and the rather over-excited commentator. What a shot!

Faldo Overcomes Norman (1996)
Nick Faldo won his third Green Jacket and final Major title at the 1996 Masters, but was dealt a huge helping hand from final-round playing partner Greg Norman.
The Shark (Norman) led the field from the first round and never gave anyone else a sniff, heading into the final round six shots clear of Faldo.
A bogey at the opening hole was quickly put right with a birdie at the second. Unfortunately for Norman, he went on to drop six shots over his next nine holes, with a double-bogey at the short par-3 12th seeing him relinquish the lead for the first time in over three rounds of golf.
Whilst The Shark was seemingly falling apart, Faldo painted a picture of complete confidence. The Englishman shot a five-under-par 67 to win by five, beating his playing partner by 11 shots on that final round!
