1979: Fuzzy Zoeller wins in first Masters try
First-time participants aren't supposed to contend at the Masters, let alone win. But Fuzzy Zoeller did, surviving the tournament's first sudden-death playoff against Ed Sneed and Tom Watson. He joined Horton Smith and Gene Sarazen as the only men to win in their first try at Augusta National.
On the second playoff hole, the 11th, Zoeller buried his eight-foot birdie putt and flung his putter toward the sky.
