EVENT: 1989 Masters Tournament
DATE: 
4/9/1989
COMPLEX SAYS: 
Hoch the Choke! Homie's meltdown at the at the 1987 PGA Championship was the first sign of his inability to close out majors, and this failure two years later solidified his rep. Hoch was leading by one stroke on the 17th hole but quickly coughed it up by over-thinking a 19-inch putt. He would eventually lose in a playoff to...wait for it...Nick Faldo! We swear Faldo is like that dude who plots on the sloppiest broads all night and then goes in for the kill at closing time. Straight up grimey.
