Famous Shots

The Ryder Cup has to be one of golf's most high-pressure situations. This considered makes the amazing feats that have been achieved something that is hard to believe. From Christy O'Connor Jnr's sensational 2-iron at The Belfry to Jamie Donaldson's shot-the-year from 146 yards to a foot at Gleneagles, there have been many moments we'd love to recreate.

Across the globe, we can see other instances to attempt ourselves, from Seve's 3-wood at PGA National in the 1983 Ryder Cup, Tom Watson's stunning chip-in in the 1982 US Open on the 17th at Pebble Beach or Rory McIlroy's approach to claim the Irish Open on the par-5 18th at The K Club - there are so many shots that are completely out of the ordinary that us mere mortals can only dream of being able to execute them, even without the pressure of a huge occasion.

Famous Moments

The famous moments of golf are those that become not only the image of the week but of the decade.

What are the moments you remember the most? Is it the tears that winning The Open or The Masters brings, dancing-on-the-green-Olazabal-style in celebration or maybe when it all goes wrong in the Barry Burn at Carnoustie for Van de Velde? Wherever your famous moment took place, golf provides the vehicle to enjoy this for yourself and celebrate in the 19th hole, whatever the result.

The Celebrations

You've seen these moments on TV, the 'hairs on the back of your neck' moments.

Was it Tiger claiming Major #15 at The Masters in 2019, Darren Clarke holing the winning putt in the 2006 Ryder Cup or Jack Nicklaus waving goodbye at The Open Championship for the final time that made you really stand up and appreciate the majesty of the game of golf?

Whilst we might well struggle to create those moments under the same pressure, the drive to attempt them ourselves and share the stories with our friends is one that is there for every golfer.

Tiger's chip

You probably know the chip we mean, it’s widely known as the most iconic shot of his career. In 2005 Tiger Woods won his fourth Masters on the 16th hole in his final round, sinking his chip from the rough while fighting for the lead.

If you want to watch history being made, you can book the ultimate bucket list experience and visit Augusta to cheer your heroes on at the Masters.

Europe's comeback

Picture the scene at the start of the final day of the 2012 Ryder Cup. Team USA were leading 10–6 needing only 4½ points to win, compared to Europe who needed 8½ points. Imagine watching Europe achieve one of the greatest comebacks in Ryder Cup history. Tiger Woods missed a putt on the final green and conceded the hole to Francesco Molinari, halving the final point and securing outright victory for the European team, 14½–13½

Darren's Major win

In what some would say was the twilight of a distinguished career, 42 year old Darren Clarke followed fellow countryman Rory McIlroy into the list of Major winners with a three-shot victory at Royal St George's. The 2011 win stood out as a victory for the everyday golfer as the Guinness drinking, cigar smoking Northern Irishman beat a field of golfing athletes to claim the greatest prize in golf.
