Tiger Woods’ Shot On 15th Hits Flag Stick But Ends In Water


Going into the Par 5 15th hole at the 2013 Masters, Tiger Woods was tied for the lead at -5.  But all that changed when he was the victim of one of the unluckiest bounces in Masters history.  On Woods’ 3rd shot, he hit the flag pole but the ball ricocheted back into the water hazard.

The announcer even commented after Woods hit the shot that he, “struck it beautifully.”  Unfortunately, it didn’t land beautifully.

After taking a drop, Woods managed to escape with only a bogey.

Somewhere Elin is smiling.
