Tiger Woods made an incredible comeback when he won the Masters.
While his win is impressive, it’s not his most iconic moment.
That honour goes to the shot taken during the 2005 Masters when he chipped in on the 16th hole of the final round.
At the time he had a one-stroke lead over his playing partner, Chris DiMarco, whom Tiger would eventually beat in a playoff.

Tiger Woods won his fourth Masters Tournament in 2005, and in the final round, he hit what was arguably the most iconic shot of his career.
On the 16th hole in his final round, Woods sank a chip shot from the rough while battling for the lead, with the ball hanging on the edge of the hole before falling in.
Let’s take it all in again:
I’m not a golf fan, but I can tell that that is pretty amazing.
Tiger’s caddie Steve Williams revealed some details behind the shot that make it look even more incredible.
Williams says Tiger was aiming for an old ball mark the size of a dime and that he hit it perfectly on the fly.
“There’s more to that Tiger hole-out than you probably know. After Tiger inspected the green and was walking back to his ball, he pointed out an old ball mark on the green. It was the size of a dime, almost fully healed, practically invisible. He said, ‘You think if I hit that spot, it’ll take the slope without going into the bunker?’
… I told him I liked that play. He then hit that old ball mark exactly, from 20 feet away from a tough lie. That the ball went in the hole was sort of a miracle, but hitting the old ball mark on the fly was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.”
