In visible pain at Masters, Tiger Woods tumbles to bottom of leaderboard
AUGUSTA, Ga. — From a record-tying 23rd consecutive cut made at the Masters to ending the day three strokes behind any other golfer left in the field, Saturday was another unbelievable day in the unbelievable career of Tiger Woods. The question now, is whether he has anything left in the tank for Sunday.
The five-time Masters winner returned to the course Saturday morning to resume his second round and, after getting a little help from his friends, was able to make the three-over cut right on the number and add his name to yet another Masters record.
“I hope I get a chance to play two more rounds,” Woods said after completing his second round but before finding out he had made the cut.
Woods is either sport’s all-time greatest competitor, or a glutton for punishment. Or both. As the weather quickly deteriorated, so did Woods’ golf game on Saturday afternoon. Tiger made two bogeys and two double bogeys over seven holes to start his third round, falling to nine-over par for the week.
Even Augusta National’s mighty SubAir drainage system was no match for Mother Nature. When play was suspended for the day with water puddling on the greens, Woods was in last place of anyone who made the cut.
