Golf was once referred to as a good walk spoiled, but for many it is the ultimate sport, and is home to some of the highest paid athletes in sports. Many of those hail from the US, and the US Masters Tournament is held by many to be the ultimate decider of the world’s top player, so it is no surprise golf fans are getting excited about The Masters 2014. Hitting The Green is a website that offers advice, editorials and punditry for the game, and has recently published an editorial on the best shots of all time to come out of the Masters tournament. —
The site, which ordinarily posts helpful hints and tips for golfing enthusiasts to improve their game, from golf for beginners to top rated golf clubs, has seen a departure on this occasion in to the field of sports history. The list offers a countdown of the ten best shots from entire history of The Masters.
The number ten shot on the list, for instance, hails from 1937. For the more recent entrants, from 1957 onwards, there are even video links to see the shots from the original TV coverage, along with editorialized information on the context of the shot and what it meant to the game as well as the technical achievement of the shot itself.
A spokesperson for Hitting The Green explained, “The Masters Tournament is a place where legends are born, and these shots are etched in history forever. The fact remains however that for all the extraordinary work done by peerless athletes like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, Gene Sarazen won our all-time top ten Masters shot with his majestic double eagle in 1935. That shot was instrumental in creating the Masters tournament’s reputation as a place for legends to be born, and everyone has benefitted from it since- fans most of all.”
