    Ben Wright's passing recalls how a legacy can be tainted in an instant

    Always enjoyed his work with CBS and The Masters, of course - until he had his Jimmy the Greek moment. Distinctly remember his call on Seve's shot into the 15th green in 1986, which paved the way for Nicklaus: "Oh, he's pull-hooked that. That's destined for the water!" *plunk*

    Also had a "Yes sir!" when Nicklaus eagled 15 -- but Verne's call on 17 gets all the notoriety.
