On This Day in Golf History:
January 25, 1997 - Tigers Woods hits one of the most memorable shots in golf history in the third round of the Phoenix Open (see below). Woods hit his nine-iron on the 155-yard 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale for a hole-in-one in front of the most raucous crowd on the PGATour.
