Masters' 15th Hole Stings Tiger Woods

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Tiger Woods might've be the leader midway through the Masters if not for a bad break at the 15th hole.

Woods was tied for the top spot Friday when he hit a wedge from 87 yards right at the hole. Unfortunately for him, it struck the flagstick and ricocheted back into the water.

He limited the damage by scrambling for bogey, but that bit of misfortunate seemed to take all the steam out of Woods' round. He three-putted for another bogey at the 18th and wound up shooting a 1-under 71 that could've been so much better.

Even so, Woods is right in the mix heading to the weekend at Augusta National. He's just three shots behind Jason Day and liking his chances if he plays like he did Friday.
