Larry Mize thought he had blown his chance for the Green Jacket . . .
It won’t be long until this year’s Masters at Augusta in April and we thought you would love to see a reminder of that awesome finish to the 1987 Masters.
The last three men standing for the playoff were Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman and Larry Mize. The first hole was a bogey for Seve and that left Greg and Larry to move on to the second playoff hole.
The then 28 year old Larry Mize hit his tee shot at the par 4 11th off to the right and was left lying about 140 ft from the hole. The one thing about being that far out was that Larry realized that his only option to get near the hole would be to pitch and run with his sand wedge.
