We dove into the annals of history to each find a past event that featured some special carnage. We detail where things went wrong (or right, depending on how you look at it) in course setups, the high scores that ensued, the funny occurrences, and of course the classic quotes. The events include the 2004 US Open, the 2017 Bahamas Great Exuma Classic, the 1901 US Open, the 1979 Players Championship, and the 1999 Open Championship. This was a lot of fun.
