Question of the Week

Fight to the finish

This season of staying at home gives us plenty of time to reflect — like debating the best tournament finish ever

With Sundays currently void of PGA Tour finishes and the year's first two majors postponed to who knows when, we only have memories to keep us entertained. What, in your opinion, was the best Sunday finish — major or non-major — you ever witnessed. Bonus points if you were in the gallery.

Such a vast question considering golf's history, but the final round of the 1996 Masters is right up there. Greg Norman played in the final pairing with Nick Faldo and as the day unfolded Faldo, who was six shots behind at the start of the day, shoots a bogey-free 67 to win his third green jacket after Norman’s 78. Many layers of irony and tragedy on that day for both players.

Many forget that Greg opened on Thursday with a tournament record-tying 63. And, yes, I was behind the 18th green when Nick hugged Greg. Patrons were tearing up ... similar to the previous year’s final round when Ben Crenshaw embraced long-time caddie Carl Jackson.

Rickie Fowler, Players Championship, 2015.

My pick has to be Ricky Fowler at the 2015 Players Championship. Coming from way back on the last five holes and then beating Sergio [Garcia] and [Kevin] Kisner in sudden death was not only awesome, but an in-your-face answer to the poll question listing him as "most overrated."
