Tiger Woods Knocked It Again

Tiger Woods Knocked It Again

Tiger Woods recently made one of the most amazing shots in his career. Starting from a downhill lie to a running green, with a wall of water on the far side, the ball incredibly landed as a birdie in the 16th hole with a par-3. The remarkable shot helped give Woods his 73rd victory.

This is Woods’ fifth win at the Memorial Tournament, which places him second in career victories, tying with Jack Nicklaus. Tying with someone like Nicklaus is really an awesome record for Woods, who is only 36 years old. In contrast, Nicklaus marked his 73rd win at the 1986 Masters when he was 46. All these accomplishments give Woods a shot of adrenaline and momentum as he prepares for the upcoming US Open, to be held at the Olympic Club.

With this win, Woods rises to fourth place in the World Ranking. The much talked-about shot would have been a nearly insurmountable challenge for anybody except the phenomenal Tiger Woods. He had just proven that he is still an exceptional golfer, despite having undergone four knee surgeries and numerous problems in his personal life.

“I went for it. I pulled it off, and for it to land as soft as it did was kind of a surprise because it was baked out and it was also downhill running away from me. It just fell in. I didn’t think it was going to get there at one point,” said Woods.
