4 Shots: Four Major Champs

In the opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker, and Graeme McDowell – three former major winners, were grouped together.

On the 7th hole, the trio seemed to be playing a game of closest to the pin, as each chip shot landed closer and closer to the hole.

Meanwhile, a fourth major champ, Padraig Harrington, was playing in the second round of the Turkish Airlines Open, and made the niftiest chip of all.
