Tiger Woods Birdies 13th at Augusta After Snap Hook, F-Bomb

Masters 2015: This Masters Already a Home Run for Tiger Woods
During Friday's GOLF.com Live From Augusta recap show, Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck and GOLF.com Live From Augusta host Shane O'Donoghue discuss how Tiger Woods' comeback is already a success, regardless of where he finishes.

Tiger Woods was playing nearly flawless golf during the third round at Augusta National. His front-nine 32 got him to six-under par and temporarily within eight shots of Jordan Spieth’s lead. Three pars in a row to start the back nine had Woods primed to catch fire ahead of the par-5 13th and 15th holes, two of Augusta National’s most vulnerable.

But Woods has never been known as the most accurate driver of the ball, and his tee shot on the par-5 13th hole became the most recent example. Tiger’s ensuing recovery shot, however, certainly made up for the blunder. Not sure if the same can be said for his audible, "Oh my f****** God" he muttered after his tee shot. Check out the swing below:

The announcer who said, “Have you ever seen that from Tiger Woods?” must not have been watching Tiger’s second round when he hit a similar shot on No. 9 and salvaged bogey.

Woods’ recovery on 13 Saturday was far more impressive. He found the green in regulation, then drained a 15-footer for birdie to get to seven-under par.
