2000 Tiger Woods com­pletes the ca­reer Grand Slam by oblit­er­at­ing the field to win by eight shots, break­ing nu­mer­ous records. 2007 Carnoustie Padraig Harrington comes from six shots be­hind to de­feat Ser­gio Gar­cia in a four-hole play-off af­ter Ser­gio’s par putt on the 72nd green de­fies grav­ity and fails to drop. 2009 Turn­berry 59-year-old Tom Wat­son set up a golf­ing fairy­tale with a chance to win his sixth Open. Al­though he just missed out, it was one of the most ex­cit­ing cli­maxes to any tour­na­ment. 2013 Muir­field Phil Mick­el­son charges through the field, post­ing a fi­nal­round 66, in­clud­ing four birdies in the fi­nal six holes and a sim­ply in­cred­i­ble sec­ond to the par-5 17th.
