The Phoenix Open isn't on Tiger Woods's current schedule, but as a 21-year-old rookie in 1997 he gave the event one of its most electrifying moments when he aced the famous 162-yard, par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale on Saturday, the loudest and craziest day of the tournament. Tucson photographer Lori Kavanaugh captured the scene in these exclusive photographs.

Woods and caddie Fluff Cowan wait on the tee. (Cowan now caddies for Jim Furyk.)

Woods and Cowan study the yardage on 16. (Tiger still has that headcover style; he calls it "Frank.")

Fluff gives the yardage book one more look. He's a long-time Deadhead, which explains the Jerry Garcia beard

Woods holds his follow-through after his tee shot on 16. We're guessing that one felt good.

Tiger showed much better high-five execution than he would exhibit with caddie Stevie Williams after holing his chip on 16 on Sunday at the 2005 Masters.
