THE ONE THAT SUNK CINK
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.
