5. 2007: Tiger vs. (the other) Rory
Rory Sabbatini has never been afraid to ruffle some feathers. In this instance, however, his timing was curious. Sabbatini led by one shot after 54 holes, but closed with a 74 and was passed for the win by Tiger Woods, who shot 69. The following week, Sabbatini said he thought Woods was “more beatable than ever. I think there's a few fortuitous occasions out there that really changed the round for him at Wachovia." Postscript: Woods and Sabbatini ended up paired in the final round three months later at the Bridgestone Invitational. Woods shot 65 to win. Sabbatini again shot 74.
