19th Hole

Tiger Woods’ Masters hopes nearly dashed by security guard

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ fans worldwide had visions of the 14-time major champion’s pursuit of a 15th crown going up in smoke, Friday. More specifically, Woods nearly went down himself when Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent, acting as security for Woods, nearly slide tackled the golfer.

In a can’t-make-this-stuff-up moment, Woods had just played his second shot from the trees at Augusta National’s 14th hole when the special agent rushed in to attempt to restrain the descending crowd (which, it has to be said, weren’t really encroaching in a way that necessitated “shots fired” level of personal security).

Woods, who tore his right Achilles tendon in 2008, limped off after the incident but ultimately birdied the hole with a 28-foot putt.

While the special agent was eventually muzzled by his superiors, he did tell Golf.com’s Dylan Detheir

“Well, he made birdie, so I guess it all worked out. Man, I am really glad he made birdie.”

Asked about the red card-worthy offense after the round, Woods said

“It’s all good. Accidents happen. I’ve had galleries run over me. When you play in front of a lot of people, things happen.”

    This “writer” of the article is a total jerk. The guy was doing his job and slipped of the wet turf. The crowd was moving fast and he was just doing his job trying to protect Tiger. The term tackle was a dumb comment as was the whole article and why even bother to publish it when what really happened was obviously an accident.

      Guy over reacted and went full operator mode. Shocked he didn’t pop up with the taser ready to discharge. Unnecessary response that could have caused a serious injury. The Gestapo and SS where also doing their job, doesnt make it any more excusable.

    No reason to get that aggressive with the most well behaved patrons in golf.

    My friend told me someone has almost 6 figures on TW to win at 14 to 1 odds.

    The Payoff would be almost $1.2 Million.

    Guess it will be an interesting weekend.

      Those aren’t mall cops and he was just trying to do his job.

        History’s worst villians were just doing their jobs too. Don’t. Just don’t.

          Comparing a bone-headed security guard at The Masters to the Gestapo or SS is just insane. You guys are clowns.
