Video: The ten best shots in the history of Firestone Country Club

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

The fun thing about big tournaments being played at the same wonderful venue for decades is the course is going to create some incredible drama over the years.

Introduce Firestone Country Club, a place Tiger Woods might as well call home, but a stretch of 18 holes that has seen some unbelievable golf shots in the past.

PGATour.com put together the top-10 best shots in the history of Firestone, and it has some of my favorites. In this you will see plenty of Tiger (shocker, since he's won here seven times), and two shots from the seven hole playoff between Woods and Jim Furyk back in 2001.

My favorite? The skip-shot by Lon Hinkle back in 1979, which could rank high in just about every sports category as "thing you wish could be shown with high-definition cameras." Hinkle won the event, but it was his shot on the 16th hole in the third round that ranks as one of the coolest, and craziest shots, in the history of this sport.
