The greatest golfing event in the world deserves its own list.
I’d like to think this one is right up my alley, particularly since I literally recorded every final round of the Masters (on those things called “VHS tapes) from 1986 through 2003.
I can tell you what Ashworth shirt Fred Couples was wearing when he won in 1992. I remember what major league baseball team logo he wore on his sleeve in the Friday round of the ’92 Masters. Do you? How about 1998 when O’Meara won? What was the name of the guy who had his first major title sewed up until O’Meara went birdie-birdie to steal the title? When Angel Cabrera won in 2009, he edged Kenny Perry and some other guy you probably don’t remember in a playoff.
I remember all three of those things: for the record, it was, in order, Florida Marlins, David Duval and Chad Campbell.
I can also tell you the sixteen most memorable Masters “moments” of the last 30 years, which you are about to read here. Please note, before we start, you will NOT see anyone “winning” as a moment. You might see someone making a winning putt as a “moment”, but you aren’t going to see Vijay Singh winning the 2000 Masters as a memorable “moment”. Reason? It wasn’t.
So, here, without further adieu, the Sweet 16 Masters Moments of the last 30 years.
