Under the hot sun of Scotland, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson matched each other through two rounds to dispose of the field at the 1977 British Open.
Tied at six under, they entered Saturday in the same pair, and went stroke for stroke once again. After each recording a score of 65, they were tied at 13 under par on Sunday.
The two matched each other through the first 16 holes of the final round, and the Open Championship came down to the final two holes.
Watson finally broke the tie on the 17th hole, taking a one stroke lead over Nicklaus as the two entered the final hole.
Battling both the heat and each other, the 18th hole was filled with drama.
Watson hit a great drive, while Nicklaus hit the rough. Watson then chipped to within a few feet of the hole, which seemed to clinch him the victory. However, Nicklaus isn't one of the best golfers in history for nothing, and he hit his ball onto the green and nailed a 35 foot putt to put the pressure on Watson.
Shockingly, Nicklaus helped to quiet the crowd and help his opponent win, and the two walked together to the scorer's table.
By a combination of both sportsmanship and impressive play, this may have been the best finish to a Major in history, and it is certainly the best at the Open Championship.
