Raymond Floyd used a hot putter and a new weapon -- a 5-wood -- to set several records in his 1976 win.

Floyd shot 65, 66 and 70 in the first three rounds, and he established marks for best start by a winner along with 36- and 54-hole scoring totals. When he closed with 70, he tied Jack Nicklaus for lowest 72-hole total and cruised to an 8-shot win.
