Tiger Woods has Masters nightmare with worst ever PGA Tour score at Augusta 12th hole

Tiger Woods carded his worst ever score at the Masters as he racked up a 10 on the par-three 12th hole at Augusta on Sunday. Woods, who won the tournament a year ago, found the water three times. At present he is 19 shots behind leader Dustin Johnson, who is two shots clear in his chase for the Green Jacket.

A 15-time major champion, Woods had a nightmare – finding Rae’s Creek on three occasions – to drop temporarily four shots over par for the tournament.

Having found the green off the 12th tee in the final round a year ago, the 44-year-old’s fortunes were drastically different this time around.

A seven-over-par 10 is the worst Woods has ever performed on a single hole at the Masters.

But Woods’ hole 12 was also the highest score of his PGA TOUR career on any hole, with his previous worst having been the nine he scored in the third round of the Memorial Tournament back in 1997.

But incredibly, it is not the first time a defending champion at the Masters has made a 10, with Bubba Watson also managing 10 on the 12th on a Sunday in 2013 before Sergio Garcia made a 13 on hole 15 in 2018.

Woods did pick himself back up at 13th with a two-putt birdie to improve to three over for the tournament.

But he still finds himself tied 54th following rounds of 68, 71 and 72 heading into Sunday.
