A look back at the wildest endings of the past 25 years at the golf season's final major
Bob Tway

1986, Inverness

The 1986 season was crazy in general, especially for Greg Norman. The Shark held at least a piece of the 54-hole lead in each of the four majors, but only won the British Open. His wild year at the majors began with Jack Nicklaus' improbable back-nine run at Augusta and it ended with an equally-unlikely finish. After blowing a four-shot lead on the back nine, Norman looked like he'd at least find himself in a playoff, but Bob Tway holed out from a greenside bunker on the final hole for the victory. The historic shot gave Tway the lone major of his career and added another painful chapter to Norman's.
