It was 1948 and Moe arrived at the last hole, needing a four to break the course record. Moe was know for his talking ability and asked his playing partner what kind of a hole it was. “It’s a drive and a nine-iron,” his partner exclaimed!
After hearing his partner’s advice, Moe proceeded to hit a nine-iron off the tee, followed by a driver off the fairway. The ball came to rest on the green within a foot of the flag. Norman scored a birdie 3 … and broke the course record. This was vintage Norman, forever controversial and one of the biggest gamblers ever to play the game.
