THE SECOND PUTT WAS JUST A MISS...:

The Most Painful Putts in Golf History (David Biderman, 7/20/09, WSJ)

At age 59, Tom Watson was one shot shy of making history Sunday in the British Open. Then his putt fell short, positioning him on the losing end of a four-hole playoff. Sure, the putt was makeable, but it will never be considered one of the worst misses in golf history -- many others have him beat.

...the first was the choke. He knew he should chip but a putt is easier to not miss badly. When pressure changes how you play for the worse it's choking.
