Before Francesco Molinari was crowned Champion Golfer of the Year in 2018, Costantino Rocca was long known for being the most successful male golfer that Italy had ever produced.
But despite winning five times on the European Tour during his impressive career, his second-place finish in The Open at St Andrews in 1995 remains the performance he is best known for.
Rocca pushed eventual winner John Daly all the way on the final day, only for his efforts to prove in vain as the American to clinched the Claret Jug in a four-hole play-off.
Yet while Rocca missed out on his best chance to win a major, his stunning putt from the Valley of Sin on the 18th hole in regular play is still considered one of the best shots in Open history.
