Golf Australia - - IN MY OPINION -

2016 BMW PGA cham­pion

The shot: “On the 18th green in the 2008 Open at Birk­dale, Ian Poul­ter had a 20-footer for par. That was be­fore Padraig Har­ring­ton birdied the 15th and ea­gled 17, so in a lot of peo­ple’s minds it was for the Open, or to get in a play-oˆ. He holed it and I re­mem­ber my dad – who was cad­dy­ing for me – shak­ing his hand and say­ing ‘balls of steel’.”
