The Masters – 10 Greatest Moments Ever

There are four major championships and none are as prestigious as the one they call ‘The Masters.’ While the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championships rotate the course they are played on, the Masters is played every year at Augusta National. And the Green Jacket is the most coveted award on any pro’s list of “must have”. So, as it is every April, the Masters kicks off the major championship charge, and Sunday at “Amen Corner” is must-see TV. The Masters has seen its share of great moments, just ask Tiger Woods. Before him, not many black golfers had ever set foot on the lush grass of Augusta, much less won the tournament. Tiger, at the tender age of 21, became the youngest winner, ever, of the hallowed green jacket. And, he demolished the field along the way, firing a tournament record 18-under 270, which was also a tourney record 12 strokes ahead of his nearest contender.

#10 – Adam Scott, 2013

You can bet that Greg Norman was watching last year when countryman Adam Scott holed his birdie putt on a second playoff hole, becoming the first Australian to don the Green Jacket. Norman is probably the best golfer never to win at Augusta, and is Scott’s idol. For Scott, who has also played bridesmaid a few times, the Masters win was his first — and long overdue. Scott set the table for the eventual playoff at last year’s Masters, holing a 20-foot birdie putt on 18 to take a one-stroke lead. But Angel Cabrera, had designs on his second Green Jacket, who also dramatically birdied 18. On the second playoff hole, Cabrera’s birdie putt lipped out. Scott sent his 12-foot bender into the cup, and the celebration Down Under was on.
