Tiger Woods suffers the worst hole of his CAREER by shooting TEN on par-3 12th on Amen Corner as Masters champion sends the ball into the water THREE TIMES… 19 months on from the scene that led to his historic triumph
- Tiger Woods hit a dismal 10 at the 12th hole on the final day of the Masters
- The American found the water three times at Amen Corner on Sunday afternoon
- It is the worst score Woods has ever produced in the his PGA tour career
- Woods’ performance on the 12th in 2019 was crucial to his Masters win last year
Last year’s Masters champions hit the water three times on Amen Corner, including from the tee, as the American fell ever further away from contention at the Augusta National in an embarrassing showing.
It was the worst score the 44-year-old has ever produced in his PGA Tour career and comes 19 months after he won a shock Masters title in 2019.
Tiger Woods hit the worst score on a single hole in his Masters career on Sunday’s final day
Woods needed ten shots to get through the par-three and even found the water three times
The American responded with five birdies in the last six holes to end his Augusta display for this year. Had he scored a par on the 155-yard hole, he would have ended the competition tied for 12th.
On the 12th, Woods took a penalty drop after hitting the water from the tee shot but his third shot spun off the green and into Rae’s Creek once again.
After another drop, the American wedged into the bunker for stroke five before overhitting his shot from the sand into the water once again.
The disastrous shot continued right up to shot nine when he missed a putt but finally found the hole on his tenth attempt. The score moved him from 30th place to joint-57th on four over par.
In his 22 Masters appearance, the previous worst score Woods managed to register was an eight on the par-five 15th hole. The highest score at a hole in Masters history was Sergio Garcia’s eight-over 13 at the 15th in 2018.
The American was already out of contention at the Masters but the 12th left him four over par
When Woods won the Masters last year, a key moment was the American’s display at the 155-yard 12th, known as ‘Golden Bell’.
Rivals Tony Finau, Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka and Ian Poulter all found the water in 2019 as Woods charged to victory in Augusta last year.
That result was Woods’ fifth Masters triumph but the 44-year-old has been unable to replicate the success this time around, with his display on the 12th confirming his Augusta decline since 2019.
Sunday’s display on the 12th is the worst score Woods has managed in his PGA Tour career
