All our collective hearts went out to Jordan Spieth on Sunday afternoon as he imploded and lost the 2016 Masters Championship.  But he is not alone.  Almost every great has experienced the feeling of a Major Championship slipping slowly through their fingers. Some of the greatest names in professional golf like Greg Norman, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan have succumbed.  Jordan is not the first, and he certainly won’t be the last!  It just reminds us that these great players are human and get nervous just like the rest of us!  Thanks so much to of Golf Digest for this comprehensive and interesting list!

1939 U.S. Open

Snead in defeat!

The only blemish on Sam Snead’s career is never winning the U.S. Open. In 1939, he had arguably his best chance to do it, needing a par 5 on the 72nd hole at Philadelphia C.C. to win. Snead, though, mistakenly thought he needed a birdie, played the hole aggressively and made a triple-bogey 8 to finish in fifth, with Byron Nelson winning.
