Michael Long holds a unique collection of New Zealand titles (U-18, U-21, Amateur and Open Championships) and Australasian Tour record of 18 consecutive cuts in a season in 1996.

He called a penalty stroke on himself while challenging Ernie Els for the Johnnie Walker Classic in 1997. The Kiwi was addressing the ball to attempt a birdie putt on the final day and spotted that it moved a tiny fraction. No one else noticed. Two putted for bogey after the penalty and finished one behind Els.
Addressing the subject post-round, he said: “When it happens you’ve got to be honest with yourself and own up.”
