(The above picture, taken at Olympic Club with an infrared camera, is one of my favorite shots of the year.)
Keegan Bradley became a staple on the PGA Tour in 2012, with no situation deserving it better than the final round at Riviera, where Phil Mickelson and Bradley gave us arguably the most exciting moment of the season with back-t0-back birdie putts to land in a playoff with Bill Haas.
Golf fans had been waiting for this moment for too long, but Tiger Woods was finally able to snag a victory with his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He went on to win two more times in 2012.
Streeter Lecka landed this incredible photo of Bubba Watson's second shot during the playoff against Louis Oosthuizen that not only won him the green jacket but was easily the shot of the year on the PGA Tour in 2012.Adam Scott but his chances at a major comeback were dashed when he found this bunker on the sixth hole that led to a triple-bogey. Rory McIlroy after his birdie putt on the 72nd hole at the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island said it all. His win was the second time in consecutive seasons that McIlroy was able to snag a major championship by eight shots.
The lasting image of the Ryder Cup comes from Andy Lyons, who landed this shot of Jim Furyk hunkered over after missing a putt that would have kept the Americans alive during an epic comeback by the Europeans on Sunday at Medinah.
Paul Casey had to deal with quite the hazard when a dog snagged his golf ball off the green at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in October.
