Top 10 Moments at the Masters Golf Tournament

The Top Ten
1 Jack Nicklaus Wins Masters at Age 46 (1986)

"Maybe, YES SIR!" Those 3 words best described not Just his birdie at the 17th hole, but for this tournament. You See 1985 was again a winless season for Jack, just like 1979 and golf critics said Jack had no chance to win another golf tournament, let alone a Major. They didn't know Jack then (1980 U.S. Open), and they didn't know him again. In that epic tournament he turned back the clock one more time as he carded a final round 65 INCLUDING a 30 on the back nine that included 4 birdies and an eagle on the famed 15th hole. When it was all said and Done Nicklaus captured his 6th green jacket.

4 Ben Crenshaw Wins Masters Following Former Coach's Passing (1995)

Harvey Penick, a mentor who made Ben Crenshaw a major golfer died before this Masters Tournament. With emotions riding on every stroke Crenshaw first shot a 70 in Round 1, a round that also saw Jack Nicklaus shoot 67. But Crenshaw showed the gallery that he knew he was going to wear that green jacket by firing a 67 in round 2, then on Saturday a 69 and then with a lead down by 2 strokes and needed to make bogey in the last hole to win it, he made it and then broke down in tears in one of golf's most emotional television moments of the 1990s.

6 Tiger Woods' Incredible Chip at Hole 16 Leads to Epic Playoff Win (2005)

The 2005 Masters began with the final appearances of three legends: Tommy Aaron, Billy Casper, and Jack Nicklaus, the only six-time champion. Rain played a part in these Masters, but when Sunday came around, it became a two-man duo between Chris DiMarco and Tiger Woods. These two put on a great show as DiMarco's birdies on the 14th and 15th set up the 16th, where Tiger's first shot was just off the green. Then came that incredible chip to make birdie and change the course of the tournament.

8 Nick Faldo Wins Masters as Greg Norman Collapses (1996)

You had to feel bad over Norman, here's a man who brought joy at Augusta, when he started the tournament with a 63 and started Sunday with a 6-shot lead over Nick Faldo, I thought it was a for gone conclusion, and I remember watching other sports especially the National Hockey League and I had a VHS recorder so I tape it to view it later, and what I saw I said How did it happened? Norman's 78 and lose the Masters, it's very tough to break it all down, but it was the big event in april, 1996

The Contenders
11 Jack Nicklaus' Last Great Final Round (1998)

Mark O' Meara finally won his first major there, but the real story comes from the only 6 time champion Jack Nicklaus. The 58-Year Old Hall of Fame legend began the final round with two birdies in the first three roles, nothing much but then after bogeying the 4th came back with back-to-back birdies on holes 6 and 7 and after 13 holes he was ONLY 4 strokes back of the leader David Duval. But after that it all stalled there but still finished a tie for 6th. Jack would keep playing at the Masters until 2005, his final competitive Masters.

There was a time that the Masters wasn't even consider a major golf championship.

This 1983 Masters appearance was also the last time that Arnold made the cut. On opening day Thursday of course, he shot a 4 under par (68 for the day).
