Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 140 - The Masters
LYLE’S LAST DITCH BIRDIE, 1988 P HIL Mickelson became the eighth player to win three Masters’ titles when he tied the third lowest 72-hole total ever with a 16-under-par 272. The highlight of the win came on the par-5 13th on Sunday, when he striped a 207-yard 6-iron between two pines right of the fairway to four feet from the cup. He missed the eagle, tapped in for birdie and he was never going to be headed from that point. PHIL’S THIRD JACKET, 2010 13 T IGER Woods' fourth Masters’ victory was highlighted by a 30-foot chip-in from long and left of the 16th green. Some have called it the greatest shot ever played at the Masters. Woods himself called it “one of my more creative shots” as his 30- foot chip was hit into a slope and tracked back down the hill and dropped slowly into the hole. He eventually finished tied with Chris DiMarco, who Tiger defeated at the first playoff hole with a birdie. WOODS’ UNBELIEVABLE CHIP-IN, 2005 10 N O PLAYER had ever birdied the final four holes to win the Masters, but South African Charl Schwartzel did it in 2011 to hold out the Australian duo of Adam Scott and Jason Day. The pair finished two strokes behind the South African thus continuing the long run of near misses for Australia golfers at Augusta. For Schwartzel, he became the third South African behind Gary Player and Trevor Immelman to win a green jacket. SCHWARTZEL THWARTS AUSSIES, 2011 12 N O BRIT had ever won the Masters and in 1988 it looked like that fact would remain. Sandy Lyle needed a birdie at the final hole and hit his 1-iron for safety. But he overcooked it and his ball found the fairway bunker. He'd been four ahead with nine holes to play before Amen Corner reeled him in and he was now level with Mark Calcavecchia. Lyle picked clean his 7-iron from the sand and it plummeted into the slope behind the flag and trickled back down to 10 feet. He holed the putt for a famous win. 11
