Van De Velde was the worst choke I have ever seen with Narman's 96 Masters a close 2nd. A double bogey wins and he gets a 7. Can't wait for the 07 British. Its at Carnoustie again and I hope they set it up like they did last time. I like watching the pros hack it up and then complain like a bunch of cry babies.

Yes, Carnoustie is always brutal. It's just about as tough as any U.S. Open venue, and you know how brutal those are. The Masters is still always my favorite though.

Those were terrible. Also, Jana Novotna in the Wimbledon finals againt Graf. She was up I think 6-7, 6-1, 5-1 with a 40-0 lead (I could be slightly off) then she lost the match! Damn that sucked for her.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

On the snap Romo had the ball cleanly, it just slipped on putting it down, thats not really choking its just that rare chance of it slipping from under his hand and fortunately it happened to Homo

I agree... Jean Van de Veld's 1999 British Open was the all time choke.

I loved the fact that Dallas lost, but I also felt pretty bad for Romo. You could see he was taking it pretty hard.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

The implication (from those nasty rumor guys) is that the Seahawks supplied a slippery ball.

Late in the game like that I'd guess most of the balls would be wet, if not all of them.

I like watching the Masters a lot more now that they have set it up much harder. I guess those crusty good old boys that run it got tired of seeing all those birdies. If they ever grow the ruff up like a US Open it would be unplayable.

You could see how slick the ball was. But Romo should have put on some gloves.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

I really feel bad for the guy, I kinda like the NFL longshot stories. He came out of no where and did pretty well. I still hate the f-ing cowboys, but sometimes you gotta root for the underdog. And face it they wouldnt have gotten this far without him

Romo fumbled twice against the Lions a week earlier when he wasn't even touched! Maybe he'll be like 50/50 was, he'll hold on half the time!

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

I guess one has to define "choke." To me it is a pattern of mental errors in a high pressure environment that collectively lead to failure. That is different than a single isolated mistake that causes a loss. Romo made a mistake, but that's not the same as choking. Phil is clearly the big winner here.

Also note that choking in a team sport is much more difficult since wins and losses are based on collective performances instead of one person. Golf is the ultimate choke producer as it is so easy to succumb to the pressure on the final holes. That's what makes the Yankee's collapse in '04 so noteworthy. Never has an entire team shit the bed with such emphatic gusto as that squad.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Romo's was by far the worse choke, and it's not even close. He blew what essentially was an extra point. How often do you see botched extra points? How often do you see golfers choke under major championship pressure at the 72nd hole? 'Nuff said.

It's not even his real position so I don't know why people are making such a big deal out of it. Maybe if he threw 4 or 5 int's and had a bad game at the QB position then you would have a story. But just cause he dropped a snap on a FG does not mean he's a choker. This thread is plain silly.
