It seems like anytime we talk about an old event that ended in a hole-out, the name Greg Norman comes up.
That was the case at the 1990 USF&G Classic in New Orleans, when the PGA Tour traveled to New Orleans to hit up English Turn for only the second time. Norman was in the clubhouse with the lead while David Frost was the last man standing that could catch him.
Frost had to make a par on the last to force a playoff with Norman, and a birdie to win, but we all know how tough the 18th is at English Turn and after finding the bunker off the tee it seemed par was definitely the score he was hoping to make.
Frost hit his second shot into the greenside bunker, and after examining his situation, admitted he felt like it had a chance of going on. We all know what happened next; Frost plopped it out of the bunker, it rolled in the middle of the hole and it was good enough for a one shot victory over Norman.
