Vine: Tree root 1, Tiger Woods 0

Who put that there?

Tiger has not hit a fairway all day.

The world number 111 has gone off the reservation today.

Woods dropped a ‘1996’ bomb after his third round, yesterday, and it is coming back to haunt him.

Interviewed about his green blazer chances, Woods referred to Greg Norman’s implosion at Augusta. Jordan Spieth has not got the message and is on course for his first Major.

Woods, meanwhile, has not hit one of the eight fairways he has aimed for yet. He has been battling with shrubbery all day.


After his round, Woods told CBS, ‘A joint came out of place, but I put it back in.’

To add insult to actual forearm-stinging injury, Woods was subject to a Peter Alliss quip on the BBC. A viewer asked the broadcasters if Woods and Rory McIlroy, his playing partner, were the most lucrative pairing of all time.

Alliss snuffed, ‘Well, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus may have something to say about that.’
