The Masters, golf's most storied tournament, will be played this week at Augusta National. SI's John Garrity has selected the 10 most momentous strokes in the Masters' 54-year history.
1. Larry Mize's 140-foot chip-in for a birdie on the second playoff hole to beat Greg Norman in 1987.
2. Gene Sarazen's 235-yard four-wood for a double eagle on the par-5 15th during the final round in 1935. Sarazen beat Craig Wood in a 36-hole playoff the next day.
3. Scott Hoch's miss of a 24-inch par putt that would have given him a victory on the first sudden-death hole in 1989. Nick Faldo won with a birdie one hole later.
4. Roberto de Vicenzo's pencil stroke in 1968. By signing his scorecard for a 4 instead of the birdie 3 he actually shot on the 71st hole, the luckless Argentinian lost to Bob Goalby by one shot.
5. Ralph Guldahl's side-hill three-wood over Rae's Creek to within six feet of the 13th hole in the final round in 1939. Guldahl's eagle helped him edge Sam Snead by a shot.
6. Sandy Lyle's 143-yard seven-iron from a bunker to birdie the 18th and beat Mark Calcavecchia by a shot in 1988.
7. Ben Hogan's 30-inch miss for par on the 72nd hole to lose to Herman Keiser in 1946.
8. Doug Ford's final-round hole-out for a birdie from the front bunker at No. 18 to beat Snead by three in 1957.
9. Arnold Palmer's skulled bunker shot over the 18th green on the 72nd hole, giving the victory to Gary Player in 1961.
