Perhaps fitting for a layout known as one of the toughest in golf, the most famous shot ever struck at The Ocean Course was one a golfer missed—a six-foot putt by Bernhard Langer that would have allowed Europe to retain the 1991 Ryder Cup. Instead, the putt slid past the hole, and the U.S. prevailed in the famed "War By The Shore".
