Probably wouldn't of said this before the tournament, but Sergio winning The Masters to finally get a Major and in the process win over a lot of fans that he may not have had in previous years.

What a duel between him and Rosey

For me it was seeing Sergio finally win his major. Justin Thomas's breakout season was a close second.

Masters Playoff for sure. Nothing else is even memorable for me.
I know Spieth won The Open but that one just didn't resonate with me.

Probably Sergio and its a shame that Golf's grandest stage is at the very beginning of the season. Very NASCARish

Sergio winning The Masters. I wasn't a Sergio fan early in his career but found myself rooting for him the last couple years.

World #1 Dustin Johnson coming off three consecutive victories, hurts his back the night before the Masters and has to WD. It's not really an on the course story, but the best and hottest player in the world not being able to play in that first major was a big story to me.

Ton of love for Sergio but I have to go with the incredible season that Justin had. 5 wins, first major, fedex winner, etc...

To me the story that stands out to me the most and probably because I attended the Sunday finish was the rough at the US Open and some of the top players in the world (Rory, Dustin, Jason Day) all missing the cut.

I would say Speith winning the open. That was a hell of a final round.

Spieth winning The Open, and watching JT's amazing season, especially kicked off with back-to-back wins in Hawaii with a 59!

This is it for me also. As dominate as he was as that point he was as close to a lock to win the Masters as you can get. It would have been pretty cool to see how different the Tour would have looked this year had DJ been healthy the whole year also.

They had that replaying on the Golf Channel yesterday and got home from work to catch holes 13 - 18. What a 6 holes it was.

Probably Sergio winning the Masters with some amazing shots and (more impressive for Sergio) amazing composure down the stretch. But pretty close behind was Spieth's Open win & Thomas's first major.

And for me, watching Ryan Armour get his first win is up there with all these too. He went to my high school, so I've rooted for him for a long time. Super happy for him & he's an example for me to keep in mind - keep working & good things can happen (relatively) late in your golfing career.

JT's season for me- Watching him go low in Hawai'i to start and cap it off at the Fedex was pretty memorable.

Tiger Woods having a successful return to the PGA Tour at the Hero. I get Sergio and JT were great stories, but as we saw a few weeks ago Tiger still dominates the discussion of PGA Tour golf.

The most memorable moment for me was Spieth's 30 minute golf hole in the British Open. He lost, saved and won the tournament in a single hole, all while having the most creative use of rules I ever remember being used by a Tour Pro.
