Today’s question: In which 1975 major championship did Jack Nicklaus sink a final round 40-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, then go on to defeat Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf by one shot?
Yesterday’s question and answer: Steve Bartman’s “interference” did not lose game six of the 2003 NLCS, but it started the inevitable collapse. Whose error later in the inning truly cost the Chicago Cubs the inning and the game? The answer: Alex Gonzalez. While Bartman may have started the bad karma, Cub shortstop Alex Gonzalez botched a potential double-play ball that led the Marlins to score eight runs in the inning to win game six of the 2003 NLCS. Although he led NL shortstops in fielding that year, he would give up a season of great fielding just to make that one play.
