Golf has always been a game of highs and lows, but everything seems to be magnified just that much more in major championships. The golf gods are a fickle bunch and just when you think you’re on their side, they can come back to bite you just like that. Here’s a look back on 10 of the toughest breaks in major championship history.

Tiger Woods, 2013 Masters


Tiger was about to take sole possession of the lead of the 2013 Masters until he struck a wedge from 87-yards almost too perfectly during the second round. It clanked off the pin and went darting into the pond that guards the front of the green. Woods then executed an improper drop, which was called out by a viewer watching on TV, and was handed a two-shot penalty the next day. It ultimately went down as a triple bogey the hole leaving him five shots back heading into the weekend, which was eventually won by Adam Scott.
