Ranking the PGA Tour's Top 5 Rounds This Year

Despite the absence of one of golf's most decorated stars for a lengthy period, the PGA Tour has offered some remarkable rounds this year. Russell Henley made unexpected headlines at the Honda Classic, and the unorthodox Bubba Watson produced a sumptuous performance in the season's first major.

Victor Dubuisson's spectacular playoff performance at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship also caught the eye, prompting Gary Player to call him "a magician".

With the final major of the year, the US PGA Championship, coming to a close, the following five rounds document some of the highlights of the season. The holes have been ranked on their levels of drama, significance and novelty. 

While golf can't guarantee the kind of heart-stopping moments that other sports offer frequently, there is always a chance of final-round drama.

Therefore, all of the chosen 18 holes in this ranked list focus on the excitement of a Sunday on the PGA Tour.

The significance of the round has also been taken into account, meaning its inclusion may be based upon the consequences of the event.

Finally, the novelty of the round has been taken into consideration. This allows moments of humour or disbelief to contribute towards inclusion.
