Bobby Jones

Bobby Jones' putter, 1929, Winged Foot

Standing over a curving 12-foot par putt to tie Al Espinosa in the final round at Winged Foot GC's West Course, Bobby Jones was on the brink of an epic collapse. With a three-shot lead heading into the final round, Jones needed that putt to squeak his way into a playoff. Striking the ball with his "Calamity Jane" putter, Jones sent the ball on its way before it dove into the hole. He went on to win the playoff by a staggering 23 strokes and later said he believed that putt helped set him up for his Grand Slam run in 1930.
