VIDEO: Stewart Cink sinks 94-footer at Ga. Tech basketball game

Stewart Cink knows a thing or two about making clutch money putts. He won the 2009 Open Championship, for crying out loud. And that's the position in which Cink found himself on Tuesday night.

Cink was on hand in Atlanta as his alma mater Georgia Tech took on Duke in basketball. At halftime, Cink was tasked with making a 94-foot putt -- the full length of the court -- after a fifth-year student had his crack at the putt to win $25,000 and missed.


It's great for Cink, who was facing a length of putt made just 1 percent of time by PGA Tour players. However, he made zippo.

The only person upset about this? The Franklin Pierce University kid that made the same length putt last week at a basketball game and won a mere $500.

Ouch. He could've had 25 grand, Polly!
