It would simply be probably the most well-known putts in golf historical past. And this yr, it turns 20 years previous. In 2001, on Saturday at TPC Sawgrass, eventual champion Tiger Woods stood on the very again fringe of the well-known island inexperienced, looking at a 60-footer to the front-left gap on the par-Three 17th.

Two putts and a par was the aim. Midway there it was clear, as NBC announcer Gary Koch would describe, the putt was “higher than most.”

Final month, Woods was concerned in a serious single-car accident in Los Angeles. He’s recovering from significant leg injuries at Cedars-Sinai Medical Heart.

Although Woods was not at TPC Sawgrass this week, the Gamers determined to commemorate the second and honor him.

So event organizers put the pin in the identical spot because it was in 2001. And the flag, as a substitute of the usual one used on the opposite holes, had the phrases “Higher Than Most” and “TW” and the date of the putt “March 24, 2001.”

Woods gained the Gamers twice — in 2001 and once more in 2013.
