Golf Australia Express : Issue 6
THE LIST ITWAS a tricky year for punters in 2003 and a good one for bookies. With the Masters, US Open and British Open won by Mike Weir, Jim Furyk and Ben Curtis respectively, little known Shaun Micheel’s PGA victory would mark the first time since 1969 that the four majors were swept by players who had never won a Grand Slam event. Before the 2003 Championship at Oak Hill Country Club, few had heard of Shaun Micheel. Ranked 169th in the world, the American entered the event as one of the biggest underdogs in major history. But outsiders can win this event. Just ask Jeff Sluman, Rich Beem and Wayne Grady. Though his credentials may not have been that strong, the way he brought won was pure class. Clinging to a one-shot lead, Micheel hit a 7-iron from the first cut of rough and stopped his ball two inches from the cup for a birdie and a two-stroke victory. This was the final touch to the most surprising season of major championships in 34 years. WHO’S THAT GUY? Shaun Micheel, 2003 PGA Championship Oak Hill Country Club, New York
