STEVE Elkington went wire-to- wire to win the 1997 Players Championship by seven shots, chipping in from 30 feet to finish his final round. The Aussie broke 70 all four days to shoot a 16-under par, 272. It was Elkington’s second title at the Players – having already won in 1991 – and eighth win on the PGA Tour. HAL Sutton won the 2000 Players after doing the impossible – defeating Tiger Woods. Sutton led wire-to-wire but was being stalked by Woods, who was constantly cutting into his lead. With a one-stroke advantage, Sutton hit a clutch approach shot into the 18th and famously begged it to: “Be the right club, today.” It was, and he made a tournament- winning par. GREG Norman won the 1994 tournament in incredible fashion. In what’s become known as Norman’s Masterpiece, The Great White Shark made only one bogey for the week and set a 72-hole scoring record that still stands today. His four-round 24-under, 264, took him wire-to-wire to record his 14th career victory on the PGA Tour. TIGER Woods’ incredible 60-foot putt at the 17th hole in 2001 produced one of the most famous sporting comments – “better than most”. The triple-breaker from the fringe was read to perfection by Woods, who eventually won the first of his two career Players titles, defeating Vijay Singh by just one stroke.
