Today marks the 15th anniversary of one of the most famous calls in golf history.

On March 24, 2001, Tiger Woods faced a 60-foot birdie putt from the back of the island green at TPC Sawgrass' famous par-3 17th.

He drained the double-breaking putt on his way to a third-round 66 and his first Players Championship title.

But what made the moment even better was NBC announcer Gary Koch's narration of the moment, when he just repeated, "That's better than most ... better than most ..." until Woods' ball dropped in the hole.
