Tiger Woods records worst ever score on one hole at the Masters

T

iger Woods had a nightmare in his final round at the Masters when he hit three balls in the water to card a 10 on the par three 12th hole at Augusta.

Woods hit the highest score of his career on any hole as his defence of his Masters title ended in disaster at the 158-yard hole on Amen Corner.

The American hit his tee shot into Rae’s Creek, took a drop, his next shot spun back into the water, he then hit into a bunker, thinned his next into the water, took a drop, hit back into a bunker, chipped out and then two-putted for a 10.

The 12th hole at Augusta is arguably the most famous par three in the world.

It is where Jordan Spieth suffered a meltdown in 2015 when he made a quadruple bogey to blow his chances as Englishman Danny Willett won the green jacket.

Last year Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka and Ian Poulter all hit into the water in the final round as Woods won his fifth Masters title.

The 10 made by Woods is not the highest score made on the 12th hole at Augusta. That record is held by American Tom Weiskopf, who made 13 there in 1980.

Woods, whose previous highest score on one hole was nine at 1997 Memorial Tournament, admitted playing 26 holes on day three of the Masters had taken its toll on him and he looked to be struggling with his back during the final round.

Sky Sports commentator Nick Dougherty said: “This is a golf course that has been so kind to Tiger Woods, and it is trying to take all that kindness back in one hole.”
