Yesterday, we showed you Vijay Singh's incredible shot that he skipped off the water for a hole in one at the 16th hole during his Masters practice round.
In case you missed it, here it is:
While that was a pretty incredible shot, it unfortunately didn't really matter, since it was just a practice shot. With the Masters starting today, it's time to look back at some of the greatest golf shots of all time. I'm not going to go so far as to say that these are THE greatest, because that will only lead to the inevitable discovery of something better. However, I will say that these shots are definitely among the most incredible that we've ever seen. Enjoy.
5. Vijay Singh
2007 Wachovia Championship, 3rd Round, Hole 12
Vijay's shot was from wayyyy downtown, and he hit it perfectly from the edge of the fairway. Beautifully done.
4. Tiger Woods
2008 US Open, 3rd Round, Hole 17
The most remarkable part about this shot isn't the shot itself. It's the fact that Tiger did it while on a completely ravaged knee. He could barely walk, but he somehow managed to chip this one in from a steep incline.
3. Jeff Overton
2006 Barclay's Classic, 2nd Round, Hole 18
Overton made this shot for an albatross, the second shot on the par 5 18th hole. This shot took an amazing combination of extreme distance and accuracy... not only on this shot, but also on his tee shot just to set this one up.
2. Fuzzy Zoeller
2006 Allianz Championship, 2nd Round, Hole 16
I have no idea how this shot went it. Zoeller put the ball on the rough behind the green. Inexplicably, after just sitting there for about 8 seconds, it suddenly started rolling towards the hole, and went in. This video isn't fake. I swear.
1. Tiger Woods
2005 Masters, 4th Round, Hole 16
This one was in a seemingly impossible location, right on the edge of the fringe and the rough. Somehow, Tiger chipped it perfectly, and it came to almost a dead stop at the lip of the cup, and dropped in. Not only was it an incredible shot, it was also a pivotal moment in his 2005 Masters win. This one was about as amazing as it gets, and also ridiculously clutch, which makes it the #1 shot of all time.
Feel free to ridicule the list as you see fit, or make some suggestions. Let them rip.
