With golf's first major of the year approaching next month, the fight for the Masters' Green Jacket looks set to once again provide some magical moments.

The invitational event, held at Augusta National Golf Club, never ceases to entertain fans with an array of spectacular shots - and equally bad shots - often proving the difference between winning and losing.

Here, we take a look at some of the Masters' most memorable and important shots.


In 2012, Watson birdied holes 13-16 in his final round at the Masters and eventually went on to win his first major after a play-off.

But it wasn't his series of birdies that fans remember the American's victory by, but his recovery shot during the second playoff on hole 10.

Up against Louis Oosthuizen, Watson skewed his tee off deep into the trees on the left-hand side of the fairway.

Incredibly, however, he was able to hit the ball cleanly between two rows of spectators and tree trunks on either side and onto the green to help secure victory.


American golfer Larry Mize faced Greg Norman in a sudden-death playoff in 1987 and pulled off a superb 140-foot chip to claim the Green Jacket.

Bouncing twice on the edge of the green, Mize's ball surged towards the hole and sunk for a birdie, which his Australian opponent was unable to replicate with his own third shot.


Every golf fan will remember this incredible piece of mastery from Woods in 2005.

Nearly down and out, the American resurrected his Masters dream with a spectacular chip from the back of the green, placing the ball to the left of the hole and watching it roll towards its lip, where it agonisingly hung until eventually dropping in.

The crowd went wild - and Woods too went wild, eventually securing his fourth Masters title.
