Everybody has a bad day on the golf course – yes, even Tiger Woods. Unfortunately for him, he's had a lot of time on television to capture those bad moments. At least we can sympathize with the greatest golfer of the last decade by sharing in his grief.
Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, 2011. The "Worm Burner."
We've all done it. You tee up your shot, take a deep breath and envision your drive soaring through the air to land neatly on the fairway. But then you get this. Mulligan anyone?
Chevron World Challenge, 2011. The "Hungry Rough."
The rough hates everyone, Tiger, we understand! How many times has this happened to you? Answer: all the time.
WGC Bridgestone Invitational, 2014. The "Really Short Game."
For every time one of us has decided to go with an iron less than what we should have been hitting, this one is for you. So close Tiger, yet still so far.
WGC Accenture Match Play, 2012. The "Bunker to Bunker (or Rough)."
Ah, the bunker. You psych yourself up for it. You make the shot. Sure, it might not be pretty, but you're out right? Wrong. Into the rough on the other side you go – or worse, into the rocky desert scrub. We would throw our clubs too, Tiger.
Cialis Western Open, 2006. The "Shank."
The hosel rocket plagues everyone, so we're not surprised even the world's best has trouble with it.
Arnold Palmer Invitational, 2012. The "Way OB."
We agree that soaking up the sun poolside is far more relaxing than this game claims to be. If you're having a day like this, it might just be better to sit by the pool. We'll bring the floaties, Tiger!
