Tiger Puts Tee Shot On 12th Hole Into The Water, Is Now +5

Tiger Woods on the 12th hole at the Masters.

On Thursday afternoon, Tiger Woods, playing the 12th hole at the Masters, left his tee shot short and right, resulting in his ball landing in the water. Woods, after taking a drop, then went up-and-down for bogey, dropping a stroke. Friday, he did the exact same thing.

Woods, who is now in now serious danger of missing the cut, found the water again - in basically the exact same place - on 12. This time around, the bogey dropped Woods to four-over par on the day. He's now five-over par for the tournament.

The cut, right now, is five-over par. Tiger's Masters tournament this year could be over before the weekend even begins.

Woods knew his shot was short immediately. He didn't even watch it land.

ESPN notes that unless Tiger really turns it on, he'll have played his ninth straight round over par at a major. Not what people expected heading into Thursday.

Woods still has six holes to play, but if he drops another stroke, he's likely done. A birdie would go a long way in calming his nerves down the stretch here.
