It’s Friday and Tiger has let go with a monster 310 yard bomb on the 16th, only to be rewarded by his ball rolling into the centre of a filthy divot right in the middle of the fairway. For most people this vastly reduces the shots possible and increases the likelihood of laying up. Not Tiger. Instead he elected to hit a slash cut from outside 250 yards and stick it to 30 foot, going on to secure the birdie.

When asked about the divot Woods identified that it must have been from the Pro-AM as it was pointing way left.
“Had to be from the Pro-Am,”
“It was lined up 50 yards left of the green,” he continued. “That was the hard part, because I couldn’t attack it with a normal path. I had to cut across it quite hard to get the club on it and somehow pulled it off.”
The irony being that for the first time in over 20 years Woods had elected to bypass the Pro-Am instead focusing his efforts on his prep for Thursday.
