The Putt Heard 'Round the World
The United States started Sunday four points back of the Europeans at the 1999 Ryder Cup. But, after a historic comeback, the U.S. held a 14-11 lead when Justin Leonard lined up his 45-foot putt on the 17th hole. The U.S. team exploded as Leonard's putt fell, golf etiquette aside. Europe's Jose Maria Olazabel missed his 20-footer that could have prolonged the match.
