Bob Tway won his only major championship in spectacular fashion.
Winner: Bob Tway
Why It Stands Out: As he did in every major that year, Australian Greg Norman led after 54 holes in Toledo. He not only led, but also led by four. He frittered away all of those shots after 17 holes on Sunday, and he and Bob Tway finished in a tie.
They had a Monday playoff, and both missed the 18th green. From the front bunker, Tway hit a spectacular shot that went in. Norman couldn’t sink the chip to tie and lost again in a major.
Historical Significance: As it turned out, the win was Tway’s only major title, even though he did win four PGA Tour events. For Norman, it was just another in a succession of bitter disappointments on golf’s biggest stages.
