Water, water, bunker, water, bunker, hole missed: Golf star Tiger Woods experienced a disaster on the final day of the 84th Masters – of all places, at the hole where he had laid the foundation stone for his triumphant comeback a year ago.
The 44-year-old defending champion bowed the ball three times into the water hazard on the legendary course twelve of the Augusta National Golf Club. For the par-3 hole – none of which is shorter on the course – Woods needed ten strokes in the end. A negative record for the 15-time major winner: never before in his career on the PGA Tour had he needed more attempts on a hole.
“If only he had brought his swim trunks,” the AP Agency sneered in its news of Wood’s misfortune. A successful defence of the title had been unrealistic even before that. Currently, Woods lies on the split 47th course with a shot over par. Dustin Johnson is currently in the lead (17 strokes under par).
