Prior to the 2009 PGA Championship I did a post that featured five shots from Tiger Woods’ highlight reel. Here are the five shots mentioned in that post, with links to videos of each shot:
– 2002 PGA Championship: The 3-iron out of the left bunker on 18 at Hazeltine in the second round — Tiger says this is the best shot he’s ever hit on the PGA Tour. Watch the video (at 40 second mark) >>
– 2000 Bell Canadian Open: The 6 iron from the bunker over water on 18 at Glen Abbey – in my opinion this is his greatest clutch shot ever. Watch the video (at 1:30 mark) >>
– 2009 World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational: Yes, from just this past Sunday — the 8 iron on 16 to a foot, setting up birdie which (in combo with a Harrington meltdown on same hole) ultimately sealed victory #70. Watch the video >>
– 2000 NEC Championship: The “Shot In The Dark” — and final putt with flash bulbs and lighters — on the final hole at Firestone CC. An 11-shot victory is impressive enough, but this shot to close the tournament — when he couldn’t even see the flag — was truly memorable. Watch the video (at 4:14 mark) >>
– 2008 US Open: His putt on the 72nd hole at the US Open at Torrey Pines last year — perhaps his greatest clutch putt ever. Watch the video >> (and here’s a really cool home video of the putt >>)
Another unforgettable shot was Tiger’s chip-in at the 16th hole at the 2005 Masters. Watch the video >>
And here’s a cool video compilation of Tiger’s Top 10 PGA Tour Shots (excluding majors): Watch the video >>
Tiger added to this list with an absolutely incredible pitch shot at the 16th hole in the final round of the 2012 Memorial Tournament, which he holed for birdie and at the time gave him a 1-shot lead. He eventually went on to win the tournament by two, and this shot will go down as one of his best shots of all time, definitely in his top five.
Take a look at the video below, and let me know in the comments below what you think is his all-time greatest shot — is this it?
