Throwback Thursday: TFM’s Top Masters Moments

TFM’s favorite sporting event of the year started today. I took it upon myself to compile a list of famous, inspirational, historic, or otherwise bad ass Masters moments throughout history and took an office poll to decide our top 5. Here’s what we came up with.

Tiger becomes youngest Masters champion ever in 1997 while destroying the rest of the field.

Bobby Jones retiring from golf at 28 to be a lawyer, after betting on himself to win the Grand Slam, then winning the Grand Slam. TFM. He also had a hand in designing Augusta National.

Four days after serving as pall bearer for long time mentor Harvey Penick, Ben Crenshaw wins his second green jacket in 1995.

The Golden Bear’s final Major tournament win, at the age of 46, comes after a late round surge at the Masters in 1986 with his son caddying.

Tiger’s 2005 chip-in that made Nike execs soil themselves.

And although this last one has absolutely nothing to do with the Masters, this John Daly video was unanimously voted the favorite among the TFM staff. Enjoy.

      ^If any of the above were true, I seriously doubt you’d have the time or desire to piss people off on the internet.

      I can only hope that these accounts are all the same person. Can’t we not respond to first posters and leave room on the first page for legitimate comments?

      You cant ask someone if they saw what you did there; they have to see what you did there, not to be asked if they saw what you did “there”

      You can’t tell someone they can’t ask someone if they saw what they did there, what was done there doesn’t have to just be seen, but can also be asked if it was in fact, seen.

    I still agree with my older brother in saying that it would serve to the benefit of golf and the PGA to have a pre-match drink minimum.

      ^Good thing you gave credit to your brother so he didn’t kick your ass and make you cry like a little girl.

    solid list. needs to include Gene Sarazen’s 4-wood for a double eagle on 15 during the final round in ’35

      Sarazen’s shot was referred to as The Shot Heard Round the World, of course the same name as the beginning of the American Revolution. Obviously this lack of inclusion means that you hate Sarazen, and therefore hate America.
