The riff: Quipped by Tom as we get a long shot of two characters wandering around in a field of overgrown grass.
The explanation: They’re referring to pro golfer Greg Norman, and specifically to his disastrous meltdown at the 1996 Masters Tournament. At the time, Norman, “The Shark,” was the world-ranked #1 player, and on the first day of the tournament he tied the course record with a 63, maintaining his lead all the way until the final day. He began that day with a six-stroke lead, but had perhaps his worst-ever round as a professional, shooting a 78 and ultimately losing by five strokes to Nick Faldo. It remains one of golf’s most famous choke jobs.
Novelty factor: I actually knew this one, despite never following golf too much. That’s how well known the collapse was. Also, Greg Norman was always my mother’s favorite player.
Note: The only video I could find is in Japanese, but I believe this suckiness translates to just about any language.
