In Your Life, Have You Ever Seen Anything Like That?

I really enjoy The Masters.  It is... Perfect.

And, for frequent and longtime readers of this blog, this is NOT the first time nor the last you will see this clip.

There are some calls from televised sports history that always make the Top 10s.

You know them all. The Stanford Band ... to "The Giants Win the Pennant" ... Touchdown pass by Flutie ... The Kurt Gibson, "I can't believe what I just saw," ... "Do You Believe in Miracles?" ... and "Down Goes Frazier!"

There are some others.

I have one call that is often overlooked on the all-time Top 10s.  

Admittedly, the highlight is the key and in this instance, it's not only the highlight, but the circumstance and the set-up for the moment.

It's the 2005 Masters at Augusta, 16th hole.

Chris DiMarco has Tiger Woods in his sights, as he turned "Amen Corner" and birdied 14 to cut Tiger's lead - which was three at the 10th, to two, then to one after the 15th.  DiMarco was sitting pretty on 16 with his ball right in the middle of the green.  Woods hit a shot off the green against the "second cut," more or less into no-man's land on the slope.

Verne Lundquist and his CBS golf partner from 2002-06, Lanny Wadkins, set the scene and this is what happened as Verne said, "Lanny, what about this?"
