Tiger of Old at the Masters

After a tee shot that went left into the trees‚ an approach shot that crept onto the green after slicing through pine straw‚ and a two-putt par on the final hole‚ Tiger of old is back on top in the Tour Championship. The 'Tiger of old' finally got on the right track‚ but it wasn't always pretty. This is the first time in a year that Woods has been able to shoot a score that rivals his old ones.

Woods' tee shot went left from the jump into the trees

Tiger Woods had to endure another frustrating day at the Masters. The American golfer bogeyed the eighth hole and yelled out in frustration when his second shot went left from the jump into the trees. Woods' tee shot went left from the jump into the trees‚ landing on the green and then trickling back onto the fairway. He shook his head in frustration and then yelled F*** off after he hit the ball erratically. Tiger Woods' tee shot went a long way left from the jump into the trees‚ but luckily landed on the right side of the green. After hitting a great tee shot‚ he found the right edge of the green on the other side of the water. Tiger then nailed a 25-foot birdie putt to win the tournament. And then on the par-three eighth‚ he struck a beautiful shot and spun it back in‚ saving a par from inside 10 feet. The win clinched Woods' 15th major championship and gave him a career-high 82nd title. He's also the youngest player to complete the Grand Slam‚ the fifth-youngest player to do so. He is also the second player to win the Masters three times. The World Golf Association has ranked him as the best golfer of all time. Despite the lackluster performance at the U.S. Open‚ Woods revealed on Tuesday that he's ready to play at the Masters. After months of rehab‚ the former No. 1 has said that he wouldn't be here if he didn't believe in his ability to win a sixth green jacket. This year‚ a sixth green jacket would surpass his comeback in sports history. And Dustin Johnson is in Amen Corner. After a lovely approach at the par-3 11th‚ the American will have another birdie opportunity.

Woods' approach crept onto the green after hitting into the pine straw

Tiger Woods was aiming for his first major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open. Two weeks ago‚ he won the WGC-Mexico Championship in Mexico. Before his round‚ Woods said he felt something creeping up on me on the driving range. Then‚ during the round‚ he felt the same thing again. It was a strange feeling‚ but he got it right. Tiger Woods was nine shots behind on Sunday‚ and he's tied for 31st place. His chances of snatching a green jacket are not good. His three previous attempts at the par-five second hole have ended in bogey‚ despite his sand shot. He's making birdies on the last three holes‚ but he's hit into the pine straw and tipped his ball on the par-three sixth hole.

Woods' two-putt par on the final hole

On Sunday afternoon‚ the Masters was the center of attention‚ but that was before Tiger Woods shot one-under par‚ a remarkable feat considering his recent injury. He had to endure several months on crutches and was on the brink of amputation. But on Friday‚ he turned his game around‚ making four birdies in a row (15 through 18). After two bogeys on the front nine‚ JT made three more birdies‚ joining Smith and Ancer at nine-under. Despite the recent setbacks‚ Tiger's last round at the Masters has been one of his most consistent‚ even impressive. He began the day with a spectacular up-and-down save at the seventh‚ a par five‚ then dropped his second shot. On the next hole‚ he had a tough approach‚ and ended up in the left rough. He two-putted to get his fifth green jacket. After a massive opening drive‚ Woods needed a long second shot and ended up in need of a par at the first. After missing a 20-foot birdie try on the next hole‚ he holed a four-footer to save his par. After two-putting his third shot‚ Woods went on a par streak at the fourth hole‚ and fired to a tap-in range at the sixth. After a five-stroke bogey on the ninth hole‚ Woods hit a flop shot to the green on the par-four 11th hole to finish a bogey. But he made a two-putt par on the last hole‚ giving him the lead for the tournament for the first time. And his two-putt par on the final hole capped off a remarkable round for Tiger.

Woods' comeback as a British amateur

The comeback of Tiger Woods is one of the most spectacular in golf. The 27-year-old won the British Open six years ago at Royal Liverpool‚ finishing two shots off the winner's circle. It was his first major title since his father's death in 2011. At the time‚ Woods was almost world No. 1 and had been sidelined for three years with back problems. But he has made a comeback again and is aiming to win a major once again. After his first Open triumph in St. Andrews in 1995‚ Woods came back with a comeback in 2006 when he won his third claret jug at Royal Liverpool. That year‚ Woods only hit the fairway once with his driver and relied on a 3-iron to reach the green. He would use the same strategy this year‚ as Lytham is famous for its countless bunkers. In 2004‚ Woods returned to the golf world after an absence of several years. He was the youngest U.S. Junior Amateur champion and won the U.S. Junior Amateur in 1992. The following year‚ he won the U.S. Amateur Championship in the same year. In 2005‚ Woods won the U.S. Open as well. The victory also earned him invitations to the U.S. Open and British Open‚ as well as the Masters. In the same year‚ Tiger Woods took a break from professional golf following an early-morning car accident. The incident raised a public and private debate about Woods' personal life. Woods had been married to Elin Nordegren since 2004 and had a number of extramarital affairs‚ which clashed with his solid-citizen reputation. Tiger Woods then announced his indefinite leave from golf and remained out of the top 100 until his comeback at the Masters in April of '15.

Cameron Smith's bogey

The Players Championship was the first major championship to offer a prize money of more than $2 million. In recent years‚ the PGA Tour's purses have steadily increased‚ and players are barely breaking $2 million at major championships. The Players Championship has become the crown jewel of the Tour's schedule. With a purse of more than $3.6 million‚ it is also the most lucrative event. The tournament has been tight the entire week‚ and the final round was no exception. Adam Smith had a memorable round on Friday‚ shooting four birdies in a row. He nailed his 38-foot opening salvo at No. 1 and sank putts of 16 feet and 21 feet to get to the end of the day in one under par. During the second round‚ Smith was tied for the lead with Justin Rose‚ but he was never out of the picture‚ and he never went under par again. Lahiri finished at 12 under par‚ but had several wobbly moments. His tee shot was hit into pine straw on No. 16‚ and his second shot rolled into the water. Lahiri birdied the par-3 17th hole to cut the lead to two‚ and Smith had to make a bogey at No. 18. After Smith's bogey‚ Lahiri made a birdie at the par-4 18th to force a playoff. Adam had a chance to win THE PLAYERS at the end of his round. After making five birdies on the front nine‚ he birdied the first four holes on the back nine. He then holed par putts of 14 and eight feet to get to under par on the last hole. Smith is now four strokes behind Lahiri and a shot to force a playoff is now a possibility‚ but not a sure thing.
