I don’t know if that story about Tiger Woods shooting 66 with his “worst ball” of two (and allegedly having to make every birdie putt twice for it to count – watch out for the windmill, though), was an April Fool’s thing, but it seems the cold light of reality has seeped into the tale.
Today, it seems (incredibly, how is this possible?) that Tiger is still kicking the ball around and his short game woes have returned since that possibly-better-than-his 62 score of 66 at the Medalist.
In a brief piece at GolfWeek online, we get this:
… now there are whispers about how he played Tuesday at Augusta National Golf Club.
A source told Golfweek that there was good news and bad news for Woods in what many are interpreting as a Masters tuneup.
Playing with two members, Woods did make five birdies, but there had to be plenty of lowlights because the source said Woods shot 2-over 74 and that he did hit several indifferent chips, including one that went through the green and into a bunker.
He shoulda played worst ball.
You get that? He had 5 birdies but shot 2 over for the round. That’s a bunch of bogeys and/or “others.”
And he chipped through a green into a bunker.
“Maybe They’ll Move The Masters To The Medalist…”
How credible is that alleged 66 at Medalist sounding right about now?
You know what else jumped out at me when I re-read that earlier piece?
Golf Digest senior writer Tim Rosaforte reported last night that Tiger Woods recently shot a worst-ball 66 at his home course…
You ever notice how vague these kinds of stories are?
“Recently?” You mean you don’t even know when he did it? And this is the story?
How recently, if he’s chipping through greens on a course where he’s won four Green Jackets?
Yeah… sure fooled me there…
