2005 Masters

 

Tiger Woods won his fourth Green Jacket at The Masters, in this, the 69th Masters played. He needed a playoff to secure the win, but this tournament is remembered for Woods' remarkable final-round chip-in on the 16th hole.

Winner: Tiger Woods, 276

Where it was played: Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia

Tournament dates: April 7-10, 2005

Leader after first round: Chris DiMarco, 67

Leader after second round: Chris DiMarco, 134

Leader after third round: Tiger Woods, 205

Notable Notes: Chris DiMarco led by four after two rounds, but Tiger Woods caught and passed him with a third-round 65 (to DiMarco's 74). DiMarco reversed that in the final round, shooting 68 to Woods' 71 to force a playoff. Woods had led by two strokes with two holes to play, but bogied the final two holes.

In the playoff, Woods birdied the first extra hole (Augusta's 18th) to win. The victory tied Woods with Arnold Palmer for second-most wins in The Masters (4).

On the 16th hole of the final round, Woods played one of the most-famous shots in golf history. From an extremely difficult position behind the green, Woods chipped away from the hole, letting his ball roll up a slope, and using that slope to make the ball then reverse course and roll back down toward the hole. The ball hung on the lip for a few moments before dropping in for birdie.
