The Most Memorable Shots Of 2011

September 27, 2011

A look back at the golf season's brilliant (and not so brilliant) moments

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods (Chevron World Challenge)

Choking down on a 9-iron, Woods' approach from 158 yards on the 72nd hole flew right over the flagstick, before spinning back to within six feet of the cup. Then ensuing putt ended a losing streak stretching back more than two years and capped a stunning birdie-birdie finish as Tiger flashed the clutch form from his glory days to top Zach Johnson by a shot. It won't count toward his career win total on the PGA Tour, but there's little doubt that Woods' victory at the 18-man tournament he hosts every year was his most important since his last major triumph at the 2008 U.S. Open.
