That one I'm familiar with. Arguably the greatest major performance by a champion whose record may never be broken. As great as Spieth looked today 18 is a long way away. Not to mention the 19 second place finishes.

Keep in mind he's only 23 (for 3 more days; July 27th is his birthday). At this point in his career, Nicklaus only had 3 majors as well (US Open, Masters, PGA), and Tiger only had 2. In fact, Nicklaus didn't win another until he was 25. I'm not saying Spieth is going to win 18 majors, but he's the best golfer in the world currently, and is right on pace with Nicklaus.

One thing of note regarding Spieth: what a class act he is. He loses with class, and wins with class. His parents raised a fine young man, and he is very easy to root for.

Tiger's career collapsed at 14 majors (karma). Hopefully Karma won't have to take a driver to Spieth's head and derail his career. Shouldn't have to, because Spieth is WAY more humble than Tiger EVER was.

Peter,

You did a fine job raising young Mr. Spieth, except when it comes to spelling.

He changed it to disassociate himself from me, can you blame him?

Yea he has as good a chance as anyone playing but that might end up being one of those records that never gets broken. Looked like a sure thing for woods a few years ago.

I agree with you on the class act as well. Great ambassador for the game.

1999 Open Championship


The 1999 Open Championship was the 128th Open Championship, held 1518 July at the Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland.

Paul Lawrie won his only major championship in a playoff over Jean van de Velde and Justin Leonard.[2] Lawrie, down by ten strokes at the start of the fourth round,[3] completed the biggest final round comeback in major championship history,[4][5] headlined by van de Velde's triple-bogey at the last hole.[6]

Peter I actually watched that one. I think it's more remembered for van de velde's epic collapse than it is for Lawrie's victory. Double bogey to win and posts a triple. Even tin cup would have laid up on that second shot.

Yeah it's up there with the Sands of Nakajima. Just epic. I cannot imagine many guys have lost a tournament on the 18th hole with a triple bogey. I suppose it would have been a real miracle if despite that he pulled himself together and won the playoff. But that wasn't going to happen any more than Watson was going to win a playoff after blowing a two stroke lead on 18. Still a pretty amazing final round by Lawrie considering where he started the day.

Norman had a 6 shot lead in the final round of the 1996 Masters and lost to Faldo. That was painful to watch.
