my final major moment
▶ The most famous swale in the game is the Valley of Sin, which is a deep depression that occupies the fairway and the front-left portion of the 18th green at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. In the 2005 Open Championship, playing the last hole of my last major, my drive settled there. The turf was firm and fast, and the cup was cut just over the swale. I sure wasn’t going to leave it short, so I putted my ball about 15 feet past the cup and made the one coming back for birdie and an even-par round of 72. I got a round of applause I’ll never forget.
