I remember someone recently scoring a hole in one for their first shot of the day at a major event...pure magic.

Definitely the Masters in 1976 ..... Raymond Floyd ...... 17 under.

 

He led from day one and never looked back. He won by 8 shots over 2nd place Ben Crenshaw, and by 11 shots over some bloke who tied for 3rd named Nicklaus.

 

It was simply an outstanding effort to watch, he was 13 under after the first two days .... and for that one tournament, it was just like watching Tiger street the field.

Your fondest memory and you liken it to Tiger streeting the field. Closet tiger fan?

No, not a real tiger fan Sammi.

 

I liken it to Tiger due to the amount of shots he won by, and the fact that there was a pretty good line up in the field for the event, yet like Tiger in his prime ..... he was way above them in a class of his own.

The British Open 1988, Seve.

 

Was there......well sort of.......bloody rain caused a Monday finish which meant we were flying back home. Had to get the pilot to keep giving us updated scores.

 

Through connections, our group had access to the clubhouse, and we enjoyed more than a few sterling reds over lunch with a couple of Members. Occasionally went out on the links as well, if we could manage to get past the Guinness girls and the English roses at the Moet enclosure.

 

Ah mammaries......... ;)

The British Open is next on the bucket list. I’ve been to the Masters twice, once with clubhouse access and I’ve been to one US Open.

As you said, Ah mammaries.

Best US Open, Tigger at Pebble.......hands down the greatest display of power golf ever witnessed!

 

He could actually drive the ball straight back then, and courtesy of his dad, the youthful arrogance and belief that he was wayyy better than the rest of the field.

 

The worst experience, a memorable for all the wrong reasons Masters when a certain blonde chap got in his own way. Still haven't managed to watch the final three holes................ :(

I woke up so early for that final round. I took the morning off school to watch it, I ended up taking the entire day off.

When he went left on 8 and 10 you knew he was in trouble. :(

Masters 1988: First Scottish (British) win, Lyle looked set to ****** defeat from the jaws of victory (in true Scottish style) with a swim & double on 12, pulled it back to joint lead only to take an iron for safety & stick it in the fairway bunker at the last - queue superb iron & put to win by 1.

Most memorable I have seen in person though can be summed up by: van de velde get your shoes back on and take a drop you fool
