4. Phil Mickelson meltsdown at Winged Foot. After winning two consecutive majors (2005 PGA Championship and 2006 Masters), Mickelson was poised to begin the Lefty Era in golf. With Tiger cut, Mickelson faced several only a single obstacle; himself.

3. Tiger Woods wins Bridgestone Classic in dramatic fashion. Despite firing a short iron onto the roof of Firestone C.C. on Friday, Tiger was all game all weekend. Woods outlasted Stewart Cink after three playoff holes on a climatic Sunday finish in Akron, Ohio.

2. Troy Matteson shoots himself a TOUR Card. After entering the last weeks of the 2006 campaign in 145th and needing a big finish to earn his card again, Matteson was on. The Nationwide Tour grad. won the Open, and then nearly won the FUNAI Classic at the Walt Disney World Resort.

1. Tiger wins the British Open...again. Tiger faced adversity dead in the eyes after losing his father to prostate cancer and being cut in the U.S. Open. Despite numerous obstacles, Tiger took the Claret Jug at Hoylake. Oh yeah, Tiger then decided to win the PGA Championship too.
