Tiger Woods has hit plenty of iconic shots over his career at the top of golf.

During the third round at The Players Championship, one of the greatest shots of Woods' career was celebrated at the par 3 No. 17.

At the 2001 Players, Woods hit an unbelievable 60-foot triple-breaker from the fringe of the island green. The putt became an instant classic thanks in large part to the call of Gary Koch.

"It's better than most," Koch said as Woods' putt rolled through its first break. "Better than most... Better than most!"

The putt dropped, and Woods would go on to win the tournament by a single stroke.

On Saturday at the Players, the tournament paid tribute to Woods' iconic putt, using the same pin location as when Woods hit his shot. On the flag were the letters "TW" and the phrase "Better than most."
