Jean Van De Velde's meltdown at the 1999 Open Championship is perhaps the most famous in golf. He went into the final hole 3 shots clear and ended up losing a playoff to long-since-forgotten Paul Lawrie.

The highlight is him taking his shoes and socks off considering a shot from the drink. It's terrific car-crash viewing.
