Ben Crenshaw will always be remembered for being one of the greatest putters in golf history, but not even "Gentle Ben" would have predicted he would make a 60-foot birdie putt on the 10th hole in the final round in 1984.

That unexpected birdie completed three in a row, and Crenshaw held on to win his first Masters by two shots.
