John Daly wins the 124th Open Championship
John Daly won his first Open Championship and second overall major championship in a four-hole playoff over Costantino Rocca.
The 1995 Open is often remembered for Rocca's unpredictable performance on the final hole. As Rocca approached the final hole, he was one shot behind Daly. Rocca's long drive was only yards from the green, but his second shot resulted in a fluffed chip where he forgot to follow through. The ball trickled a mere five yards into the "Valley of Sin." From the Valley of Sin, well below the level of the green, Rocca putted and holed his birdie putt. The jovial Italian instantly fell to the ground and began pounding the ground with his fists out of joy.
