Playing a practice round on Monday at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Daniel Chopra made a hole-in-one on the par-3 7th and then another on the par-3 17th. Rookie Richard H. Lee announced the incredible feat via Twitter in the above screenshot. (I’d feel lucky just to have been a witness.)

Then, we cringed through the greatest meltdowns. We also checked out some players who were considered overachievers. Next, we took a gander at those who had the most disappointing seasons, along with the most notable Tiger moments.

To cap off a look back at an incredible 2011, we’ll go through some of the best feel-good stories — which is my personal favorite because believe it or not, I’m a huge sucker for sap (I just don’t like to admit to it usually). Here we go in no particular order…
