Just One ... More ... Roll

This shot was never supposed to go in. It couldn't. Tiger Woods found himself in a peculiar spot on the 16th hole in the 2005 Masters, leading the event but airmailing the green, something you hardly ever see Tiger do in clutch situations (it's interesting to think of Tiger in 2009 at the PGA Championship now after watching this, doing almost the exact same thing on the 17th, when he thought he flagged it only to have it sail over the green).

But, here he was, stalking a chip shot that we hear "is one of the toughest pitches on the entire place here."

We all figured Tiger would knock it up on the hill and it would roll down and he'd save par. That was the idea, right?

Well, just watch it again. Five years later and the damn shot still gives me goosebumps.

IN YOUR LIFE .......
