The late 1980s were the pinnacle of Greg Norman's career.
After only capturing the Open Championship in 1986 despite leading all four majors after 54 holes, Norman picked up where he left off in the first major of 1987.
Norman struggled through the first two rounds with 73 and 74, entering the weekend at three-over par. But Saturday saw him shoot a 66 and get right back into the fight, trailing Ben Crenshaw, Roger Maltbie and Bernhard Langer by one.
As the three leaders faded, Larry Mize and Seve Ballesteros would tie Norman at three-under.
With a 20-footer to win outright, Norman pushed his championship bid just past.
After Ballesteros was eliminated from the sudden-death playoff, Norman and Mize moved on to the 11th hole. Mize missed the 11th green right, and Norman played it safe, leaving a 50-footer for a certain par.
Mize holed his 140-foot chip for birdie, and Norman would make par.
