Corey Pavin was three shots behind co-leaders Greg Norman and Tom Lehman at the start of the final round in the 1995 U.S. Open. By the 12th hole, Pavin was tied for the lead with Norman, Lehman and Bob Tway. By the 15th, Pavin sank a birdie to take sole possession of the lead.
Then on the 18th, Pavin clinched the only major championship of his career in spectacular fashion.
Leading Norman by one stroke, Pavin launched a 4-wood shot from 228 yards. The ball came within five feet of the hole. The rest was a formality.
"It's the most pressure I've ever felt on a golf course," Pavin told reporters afterwards. "I just tried to gather myself and make a good swing. I was trying to hit a low draw, and I knew I'd hit a good shot. I just took off running then because I wanted to see it. I knew it would get pretty close."
