Who is old enough to remember the 1968 Masters, and THAT awkward moment?!

Reliving the 1968 Masters where Roberto De Vicenzo signed for a wrong score.

It will forever go down as one of the most gut-wrenching moments in Masters history - Roberto Di Vicenzo signing for a wrong score to cost himself a chance of winning the coveted Green Jacket in 1968.

The Argentinian thought he had signed for a 65 to lead in the clubhouse at 11-under, but unfortunately for him he wrote down 4 instead of 3 at the 17th and therefore signed for an incorrect score of 66. 

Sitting at the back of the 18th with one leg up on the arm of his chair, the 1967 Open champion Di Vicenzo was left to rue his costly mistake as he went on to lose the tournament by one stroke to Bob Goalby - who collected his sole major championship. 

Fast forward to the end of this video to see the very awkward moment in the Butler Cabin...

On second thoughts, it's probably on par with THIS classic Butler Cabin moment in 2012 shared between Bubba Watson, Charl Schwartzel and former Augusta chairman Billy Payne...
