John Daly, 18, 1998 Bay Hill Invitational, par-5 6th hole, Bay Hill Golf Course
Did Daly watch Tin Cup too many times before trying to drive it 320 yards over water to the C-shaped sixth hole at Bay Hill? Maybe. According to Alan Shipnuck's story in Sports Illustrated, Daly said it was a case of courage trumping wisdom. "I've been working on my patience all year, and I guess after 32 holes my patience ran out," he said. "I'm not ashamed of what I did. I didn't quit, I was just a little too determined." He wasn't a quitter, but he did card the highest score on a PGA Tour hole since 1983, a record that still holds today.
