It was the moment the world was forced to sit up and take notice.

In April 1997, a 21-year-old Tiger Woods turned the Masters into a procession, strolling to an awesome 12-shot victory at Augusta that shook the sport to its core.

It was the American's first Major appearance as a pro, and it would kick-start his era of dominance.

Darren Frehill has been digging into the archives to look back at that famous occasion, with cameos from Colin Montgomerie, Jimmy Magee and Eamon Dunphy.

Each week on RTÉ Radio 1's Morning Ireland, Darren will be delving into the archives to relive the nation's favourite sporting memories.
