Tiger Woods' Shot Hits Flag At Masters, Bounces Back Into Water (VIDEO/GIF/TWEETS)

Tiger Woods hit arguably one of the most accurate approach shots over the first two rounds at the Masters on the 15th hole.

And it cost him.

Woods' 3rd shot on the par 5 hole hit the pin on the fly, bounced and then rolled back into the water. Whether or not the shot would have dropped directly into the hole if not for the flag was hard to to tell, but it seemed certain that Woods would have at least been set up with a very good birdie attempt if not for the unusual bounce.

"I was pretty pissed," Woods told Tom Rinaldi of ESPN when asked about the shot after he finished his round. "So, I'm looking like I was making birdie and and now I've got to struggle and grind just to not drop two shots."


With a conspicuous choice of words, ESPN analyst David Feherty called the unlikely action:

"You've got to be kidding me. Royally cheated!"

Rather than throwing a tantrum or losing his cool, Woods sent his next wedge, after a drop, within a few feet of the hole. He would putt for bogey, surrendering a share of the lead. With another bogey on 18, Woods finished 3-under through two rounds and tied for seventh.
