The most infamous shot in Pinehurst history?

It’s U.S. Open week, and this week at Pinehurst, we’ll take some time to look back on some of the most interesting moments in Pinehurst’s history of U.S. Opens.

To get things started, we look back at perhaps the most infamous shot in Pinehurst’s U.S. Open history – John Daly’s meltdown at the 8th hole in 1999. There is rarely video of the shot to be found, but for the time being, it can be seen here on Instagram:

It’s a shot that’s been talked about in Pinehurst forever, and when Daly visited a few years back, he didn’t shy away from it in one of the most popular interviews we’ve had on social media:

UPDATE: Now you can see a fun new version of Daly’s shot:
