Open Championship 1993
One of the great Opens. Consistent low scoring (the course was softer than planned due to heavy rain prior to the tournament) made for one of the most thrilling last days imaginable when several great players vied for the lead. Payne Stewart had a putt from 20 feet at the 18th for a 62. It didn't drop, so he joined the select few who have scored a 63 in the Open.
Ernie Els became the first player to break 70 in all four rounds of an Open, scoring 68, 69, 69 and 68. Paul Lawrie holed his second to the 17th with a 3 iron, finishing in 6th place. Greg Norman, with a narrow lead from Nick Faldo and Bernhard Langer at the start of the final round, traded birdies with these two, but maintained a 2 shot lead until the 17th, where he missed a putt of 18 inches! A safe 4 down the 18th produced a final round of 64, the best ever final round to win an Open Championship (Norman's second) and matching Els's feat of playing all four rounds under 70. Read More
