Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 138
D UBUISSON occupies not one but two spots on this list and, incredibly, he played the dual miracle balls about 10 minutes apart at last year’s WGC Accenture Match Play Championship. The unflappable Frenchman found himself contending with cacti, rocks and a TV cable beside the green on consecutive holes during his playoff against Jason Day, but calmly executed two of the most incredible shots of all time to remain alive against the Australian. F ORGET the moment, the pressure and the money riding on Steve Stricker’s approach at the final hole of the 2011 John Deere Classic. What about that stance?! Stricker found a nightmare position in a fairway bunker, forcing him to play the shot with his feet well above the ball. Not only did he catch it clean, he landed it on the putting surface, setting up what would be a successful birdie putt to steal his third consecutive victory at that tournament. A S ANY golfer will tell you, it’s your ability to limit damage, rather than produce a highlight reel of birdies, that is often the difference between good and great. Watson’s chances at the 2012 Masters should have ended the moment he found himself deep in the trees off the tee at the second playoff hole. But not only did he extricate himself from the most dire predicament, he managed to hook his ball some 50 yards around the trees and onto the green, where he then two-putted to claim his first major title. They don’t get any better than that. VICTOR DUBUISSON BUBBA WATSON STEVE STRICKER Shot No.1... ...and No.2 See Stricker's amazing clutch shot in this video.
