Golf Australia - - IN MY OPINION -

Two-time Mas­ters cham­pion

The shot: “At the par-5 18th at the 1983 Ry­der Cup at PGA Na­tional, Seve drove into a bunker. I’d have used a 7-iron to clear the lip and lay up for a wedge or a 9-iron into the green. There was water ev­ery­where. But Seve pulled out his 3-wood! He didn’t just clear the lip, he drew it, start­ing it over the lake, onto the green ... then made birdie! It was mirac­u­lous, and con­firmed Seve was a ge­nius.”
