1992 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1992 Masters Golf Tournament

The 1992 Masters is best-remembered for one particular moment: The moment that Fred Couples' golf ball came to rest on an embankment fronting the 12th green during the final round.

Couples' tee ball to the picturesque par-3 came up short, and the ball seemed certain to roll back down into the water of Rae's Creek. But then it ... stopped. And settled in a tiny flat spot on the embankment. Couples was able to save par and went on to win by two strokes over Raymond Floyd.

Many longtime observers said they could not recall any other ball ever stopping on that bank. But Couples' ball did, something he called at the time "the best break ... of my life." Some journalists called it "The Miracle at Rae's Creek."

Floyd was 49-years-old at this Masters, and had he won he would have become the oldest major championship winner ever. As it was, he had to settle for being the oldest-ever runner-up in The Masters.
