Best Pro Golf Shots of 2014

This happens in every sport, when a new year begins people look back at the past year and remember the best and worst moments of the year. Sports magazines, TV channels, newspapers and websites all develop their own versions of “best of the year” pages or stories. We thought that we should give this practice a try as well. So, here it is, Advantage HIO’s Top 5 golf shots of the past year (2014):

5. Paula Creamer and Her 75 Foot Putt

We had to include this shot in our list because it was an impressive long range Eagle putt made under pressure, and the reaction of Creamer was priceless. She hit the put in a playoff bid to win the HSBC Women’s Championship. An amazing shot, a championship on the line and an unforgettable reaction from Paula Creamer made this shot one of the best golf shots of 2014.

4. Matt Jones’s Clutch Shot

This one was special; Matt Jones was in the running to win his first PGA Tour Title and standing in his way was one of the best golfers today, Matt Kuchar. Jones won the Shell Houston Open with a last effort pitch shot to win the championship and cement his spot in the Masters.

3. Tiger Woods and the 91 Foot Birdie

That sounds like the name of an old forgotten fairytale, but it isn’t. Since he spent most of the year on the injured list, the 91 foot birdie putt that Woods made at the Cadillac Championship was one of the very few highlights in the year for him.

2. Bubba Watson’s Amazing Poke off the Tee

This sort of ‘unorthodox’ shots became one of the most played highlights in golf in 2014. Watson hefted the shot away for an amazing 365 yards, creating the right buzz at Augusta National. And as a cherry on top, he added another green jacket to his wardrobe.

1. Victor Dubuisson Saves himself, Twice

It’s rare for an unknown golfer to become an instant sensation in the golfing world with just two shots. But Victor Dubuisson accomplished that feat at the WGC-Accenture Match Play. The Frenchman was down twice in the sudden death playoff and made two excellent par saves to stay in the game. He would eventually lose, but he made a name for himself in the golfing world with his heroics.
