Marc Leishman 

Leishman fired a third round 64 and by adding a closing 66 not only matched the best 36-hole score in major history, but went into a play-off with eventual champion Zach Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen. 

His performance came only three months after he withdrew from The Masters - the tournament where he tied for fourth in 2013 - when his wife Audrey went into intensive care with acute respiratory distress and toxic shock syndrome. 

She was placed into an induced coma and given only a 5% chance of survival, but once her life was saved his career hit new heights. 

On his second Presidents Cup appearance in 2015 he beat reigning Open and Masters champion Jordan Spieth in the concluding singles, two months later had a stunning six-stroke victory over Henrik Stenson at the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa and in 2017 entered the world’s top 20 for the first time when he added the PGA Tour’s BMW Championship to the Arnold Palmer Invitational earlier the same season. 

It was followed by another Presidents Cup cap.
