Tony Jacklin – Muirfield – 1972

The 1972 Open played at Muirfield featured a showdown of two legends of the game. Lee Trevino and Tony Jacklin were tied on the 16th hole during the final round when Jacklin had a decent look at birdie while Trevino was struggling to save par. Trevino then chipped his in and Jackin pushed his putt 3-feet past the hole. Moments later, he missed the shortie giving Trevino the outright lead and his second consecutive Open title.
