The Top-10 Moments In Pro Golf That Turned Supernatural

The last thing a pro would seem to need is a miracle. They are blessed with so much already—action-figure physiques, swings issued straight from heaven, and as video replays show daily, a surfeit of good bounces. In truth, the astounding things that have happened to them over the years are for our benefit as much as theirs. They instill a sense of wonder, add to the lore, and suggest we might be on the receiving end next. golf wiki golf game golf leaderboard golf channel

What qualifies as a miracle, anyway? The criteria is rubbery, but it begins with an event that indisputably is a one-off, something that could never happen again. Four players making aces on the same hole on the same day at a U.S. Open, as happened in 1989? Not quite; the cup was cut where balls funneled, making it more fluke. But Arnold Palmer’s aces on the same hole on consecutive days? What a combination of a place, person and time. When Fred Couples’ ball hung on the bank at the 1992 Masters, it was as though providence was tapping Freddie (and millions of fans) on the shoulder and whispering, I’m here. golf wiki golf game golf leaderboard golf channel

Just as he began his downswing, Jones saw out of the corner of his eye two young girls sprinting into the fairway. Jones flinched, and his ball, badly hit, seemed destined to go only halfway across a lake in front of him. The ball, however, struck a lily pad and bounded forward, free of the water and only 30 yards short of the green. This dose of Jones magic—and the fairly routine birdie that resulted—was consequential. He won that U.S. Open, his fourth, by two strokes over Macdonald Smith. golf wiki golf game golf leaderboard golf channel
