9. 1989: Kite, Love stagger to playoff
Tom Kite defeated Davis Love III in a playoff after both double-bogeyed the final hole of regulation. “I'm in shock," Kite said. "It looked like a pro-am out there. No, not that good." On the 72nd hole, Kite hit his second shot into the water and Love airmailed the green, then took two more shots to reach the putting surface. After a penalty drop, Kite hit the green in 4 and two-putted for 6. Love had a 3-foot putt for bogey and the win, but missed. The playoff mercifully ended on the second extra hole, when Kite won with a par as Love three-putted for bogey.
