2013 In Review: Memorable Moments, Best Majors 

In the final Golf World Monday of the year, Golf World's writers recall some of their favorite/memorable/unforgettable moments of 2013. While I had many to pick from, watching Jordan Spieth's inauspicious debut at Torrey Pines stood out because it was so ordinary.

On Golf Channel's Grey Goose 19th Hole, we discussed the iconic images from the year and the best majors. Not as much fun as watching David Stern choke on a sip of water in slow motion, but still some lively chats.

First the images discussion, with a special tip of the cap to the photographers for getting so many great shots of Adam Scott's victory in dreadful shooting conditions.



And our discussion of the majors:

Good work as always on the show as always Geoff. What the hell was going on w Feinstein's right eye brow? I couldn't help but look every time the camera rolled to him... yikes!

Maybe next time they can have him phone in for the roundtable.

Wonder why GC uses Feinstein. Seems he hardly follows the sport. Can't be for his looks....

Geoff...you nailed it on the image of the year. Nothing else even comes close. And there's a difference between simply capturing an iconic moment with a photograph, and a photograph that truly transcends or adds deeper layers to an iconic moment.

It is hard to find a recent year that produced 4 better major winners as Scott, Rose, Phil and Duff. Probably the best other ones since 90 were:

97 - Tiger, Els, Justin Leonard, DL3
2001 - Tiger, Goose, Duval, Toms

Time will of course tell to what extent the other three add to their resumes, but certainly there is no reason to think that there will not be multiple wins for most or all of them, especially given their relative youth.

Four worthy winners but only one real Hall of Fame guy. Scott, Rose and Duff' likable guys all, have some lifting yet to do.

"Four worthy winners but only one real Hall of Fame guy. Scott, Rose and Duff' likable guys all, have some lifting yet to do."

This irks me for some reason. Phil is a class player, and Scott's career is already favorable to the new precedent of HOF members like Fred or Monty. Plus he has finally reached a plateau of proving he can contend in the majors. Not sure why you had to rush to make such an inaccurate and uninformed statement.
