Golf is a game rich in history and thus, rich in amazing and cornerstone moments. Throughout the history of professional golf, there have been many different types of moments, some of which include changes in technology that revolutionized the game, amazing shots, historic victories, and even moments that changed the social and cultural landscape of the sport. Those are the kinds of moments featured in this list. From Tiger’s first major win at the 1997 Masters, to Jack Nicklaus’ amazing third round at that very same event decades earlier, there are many amazing stories that filled the gap between the two legends and changed the way the game was played forever. Honorable mention goes out to the fan who wore a Union Jack patterned toque and started squawking like an animal at the 2010 U.S. Open trophy presentation. Okay, not really. But seriously, here are the ten most amazing moments in PGA Tour history.
10. Vijay Singh’s Water Hole In One
Have you ever skipped a rock across a pond? How about a golf ball? That’s exactly what Singh did at the 2009 Masters tournament. Okay, so it was a practice round and not the real tournament, but it’s still amazing. The ball skips off of the water at least three times and lands on the green. Then, just when you would think the ball would stop rolling, it keeps going right into the hole. The crowd goes nuts. For a long time, along with Phil Mickelson, Singh was the biggest threat to Tiger Woods on the PGA Tour. These days he hasn’t been playing as well, but is still considered one of the top golfers in the game. With shots like this one, who can argue the man’s talent?
