Watson lost in the woods
During the nail-biting playoffs of the 2012 Masters, Bubba Watson’s nerves got the better of him as a rogue drive saw him buried deep in a copse of trees. With what turned out to be the shot of his career, Watson used a gap wedge to send the ball high and winding. Finding an impossible route, his ball curled around a maze of branches and broadcasting towers and landed comfortably just 10ft from the flag. A chip from the course’s darkest corner that defied science and bewildered the gathered spectators, the shot set up Watson’s thrilling comeback. He went on to defeat rival Louis Oosthuizen and claim a memorable championship.
