Tiger Woods Wins the Memorial Tournament
By mustang6560 on 6/4/12
Tiger Woods found himself in a precarious situation Sunday at the Memorial Tournament. And in typical Tiger fashion, the former world number one rose to the occasion to hit a truly incredible shot.
Tiger hit his approach shot on the par-3 16th long and it settled in the long rough. At this point in the tournament, he was trailing by one stroke so he needed to get up and down to keep pace with the leader. Facing a tough lie, a downhill slope to the pin, and water behind the hole, Tiger hit a flop shot for the ages - one that would even make the likes of Phil Mickelson jealous.
Prior to the shot, Peter Kostis said if Tiger could get his chip shot inside six feet that it would be a "wonderful shot". What kind of shot would it be if he chipped it in? Remarkable? Unbelievable? Stupendous? Well, that is exactly what Tiger did. He chipped in for birdie to match Rory Sabbatini at 8-under-par for a share of the lead.
While the adjective may differ from person to person, the underlining meaning will be the same. It was an amazing shot, at the most opportune of time, and it was the catalyst that propelled him to his 73rd victory, matching host Jack Nicklaus for the second most wins in PGA Tour history. Now he can start working toward Jack's other record.
