THE ONE THAT SUNK CINK

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

At the 2001 US Open at South­ern Hills, Ste­wark Cink and Retief Goosen came to the 72nd hole tied for the lead, one stroke ahead of Mark Brooks. Cink had a 15-footer for par; Goosen a 10-footer for birdie. Think­ing he needed to make his putt, Cink rolled it past. Then he missed the short come­backer. Amaz­ingly, Goosen then did the same, but he made up for it the next day by win­ning the play­off against Brooks.
