There's been a lot of great moments at the Masters over the years.
The sight of Phil winning his first major - jumping up and down on the green when he sank the put. Then again after he won his third green jacket, and embraced his wife Amy, who had been battling cancer.
There was the first confirmed sighting of the Tiger - when he was just a young lad, blowing away a field en route to setting a course record that still stands today.
Speaking of Tiger, who could forget the chip that seemed to hang on the edge of the cup forever, Nike logo for all to see, before falling in?
You can go back to Larry Mize in 1987, denying Greg Norman the green jacket by chipping in from the fairway in a playoff.
There was Ben Crenshaw weeping in 1995, Gene Sarazen in 1935 when the tournament was just in its infancy, and Gary Player shooting a 30 on the final nine to win it in 1978.
But the one that stands out to most, is Jack in 1986.
Verne Lundquist made what will likely go down as the greatest call in the history of golf - "Maybe....yes sir!" And a 46-year Jack made history with six birdies and an eagle on his final ten holes to knock of Norman, Watson, Seve, and the rest.
A few years back, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Jack's win, ESPN did a series of short videos they showed during the broadcast. This one was the best, and the story of Jack's iconic yellow shirt still gets to me today:
Happy Masters week everyone. Lets hope this years tournament holds a moment just as great.
