Using a second-hand putter he picked up for $39 in a golf superstore, Jim Furyk holes a putt of 26 inches on the 72nd hole of the Tour Championship to win by a single shot from Luke Donald. Winning the Tour Championship also brought Furyk victory in the FedEx Cup, for combined winnings of $11,350,000 - equivalent to $436,538.46 per inch of putt - surely the most valuable single golf shot of all time.
Kel Nagle of Australia was only one off the lead after a first round 70 in the Alcan Golfer of the Year at Portland Golf Club, Oregon. He made 4 at the 9th of his second round and was still well in the running, but mistakenly wrote down his outward total of 35 for the hole, going on to sign and hand in the incorrect card for a total of 105, instead of his actual 74. He finished last in the limited field event, 25 shots behind last but one Brian Barnes.
