Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

We’re several weeks into our worldwide attempt to “flatten the curve”. We’ve been offering daily escapes into the sporting events of yesteryear through our “Filling The Void” series. We’ve looked back on the inspiring, mind-boggling, and remarkable events as well as the ordinary, daily games we’ve been missing in our lives. Here at The Turf Sports, we sincerely hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and being safe through these trying days. We’d also like to take a moment to send out a huge THANK YOU to all of those front-line folks keeping society going. From the medical community to those stocking grocery store shelves, delivering supplies around the country or helping us all fight this virus together in some other essential, invaluable way. You are all heroes.

Today: Bob May and Tiger Woods go down to the wire for the 2000 PGA Championship trophy.

There are so many iconic wins in Tiger’s career, that it’s almost difficult to distinguish them. Sure there’s the different shirts, the record scores, but most often, there’s a famous putt.

The 2000 PGA Championship has one of the greatest. Bask in it’s glory.

This particular putt came on the 16th hole from 35 feet out. Hang this one at the Louvre, it’s a work of art. Most importantly, however, is that this putt came on the first of three playoff holes between Tiger and Bob May, who just chipped on, and was within a foot of saving par. It also gave Tiger the lead for the first time since the second hole.

Bob May and Tiger are having incredible rounds on the final day at Valhalla. Both golfers have shot 5-under 31s on the back nine, and have stayed within punching distance the entire time. For these two to stay within such close proximity all day, and then go for three more in the playoff is exhilarating. And much like we all wanted it to, this one comes down to the final putt.

See You Tomorrow. Stay Safe. Stay Smart. Wash Your Hands.
