A few big pros talk about their favourite Major moments that motivated them before they turned pro.
Jordan Spieth was 11, already honing his putter on a closely mown section of his front yard, when Tiger Woods won the Masters in 2005 for the fourth time. Spieth considers that his favorite major championship victory that wasn't his own.
"It goes back to when Tiger holed that chip on 16 and ended up going to a playoff with Chris DiMarco," Spieth said. "That Masters win because of that shot ... when you're a kid, you want to go out right away and try some kind of similar shot that you saw someone hit."
Nothing was remotely similar until he played Augusta National for the first time in the fall of 2013.
"The first thing I was interested in was going behind 16, putting the tee down wherever that pin was and hitting that shot," he said.
Mine was the 86 Masters with Jack charging the back 9 to victory.
