Hole of the Day

Monday, July 6, 2009

Tiger Woods was tied with Hunter Mahan for first place heading into this hole. He had to birdie one of the final three holes; otherwise, he was going to a playoff. Woods sent his tee shot 317 yards into the left rough. Using a 5-wood, he landed his second shot in the rough to the right of the green, nearly 33 yards from the pin. Woods pitched to 20 feet then made the uphill putt to win the tournament that he hosts.
