Golf entails an extreme level of mental challenges that must be overcome in order to succeed at the highest level. Unlike team sports, golfers do not have teammates to bail them out if they don’t perform; it’s all on them. One mistake can lead to a compound of errors that can be difficult to defeat, and even just one miscue can cost a player a championship.
However, some of the players in this video found redemption. I.K. Kim won the Women’s British Open in 2017. Kyle Stanley staged an 8 shot comeback the following week to win his first PGA Tour event at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Retief Goosen won the 2001 U.S. Open the following day in an 18 hole Monday playoff over Mark Brooks. Even with Mark Calcavecchia’s collapse, the U.S. was able to hold on to win the Ryder Cup 14.5 to 13.5. Tom Watson would go on to win 8 major championships after his collapse. Ben Hogan would go on to win 9 majors after his choke at The Masters. Patty Sheehan won 4 majors after her 1990 collapse, including two U.S. Open victories. She was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1993. Lorena Ochoa won two majors after her collapse, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2017. Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy the video.
Jean van de Velde, Greg Norman, and other collapses are in Part 1.
