Some interesting points in there. I'm sure a lot of that is true, but the other guys have their stats lowered by balls barely in the first cut too. I just remember some rounds when everyone was hitting driver on a certain hole and he'd take out a 3 wood or even a low iron and assumed it was because he didn't trust the driver. He was always great at getting out of trouble though, and those were some of the most remarkable shots of his career.

Yeah, he made some absolutely ridiculous shots from the trees and bunkers. The thing about him was once he hit a horrible shot, he just erased it from his mind and went about maximizing the next one.

Yea I remember one in particular that was something like 220 yards away in a bunker, I believe coming down the stretch of a major. He hit it within a few feet for a birdie and won the tournament. I might have the details wrong, but it was a hell of a shot.

Canadian Open #18, par 5. Hit 6 iron from 220 to about 20-25 feet for eagle. No one could believe he even attempted the shot, figured he would lay up.

It's #1 on this list:
