Lawrence Hogan “Larry” Mize (September 23, 1958-) is a professional golfer who earned a spot in golf history for the dramatic fashion in which he won his one and only major title, the 1987 Masters Tournament. Mize joined the world of professional golf in 1980 and three years later claimed his first PGA Tour win at the Danny Thomas Memphis Classic (1983). It would be four years before Mize would have another PGA win to his credit, but that victory came at the 1987 Masters Tournament … and in dramatic fashion. In a playoff round, it appeared that Mize was on the verge of defeat at the hands of Greg Norman. On the second playoff hole, Mize's second shot landed well off the putting green while Norman’s shot landed on the edge of the green. On his third shot, Mize hit a memorable chip shot with a sand wedge from around 140 feet, giving him the birdie. Meanwhile, Norman missed the putt on his third shot, giving Larry the coveted green jacket. That Masters win and a tie for fourth at the U.S. Open later that year briefly put Mize in the Top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings. Mize has a total of 10 professional wins to his credit, including four on the PGA Tour. (Credit: PSA)
