Here's a 105-yard drive from a 14-time Major winner

Tiger Woods’ drive on the second hole hasn’t made it past the ladies tee.

PLAYING HIS THIRD round at the Players Championship today, Tiger Woods has hit one of the worst drives of his career.

After making the cut on level par, the 14-time Major winner needed a quick start if he was going to bring himself anywhere near contention. He began his day with a par before disaster struck on the second tee box.


Woods has been hooking drives down the left side of the fairways all week but this drive struck a tree directly in front of the tee and ended up in the pine straw 70 yards short of the actual fairway.

In fact, the ball didn’t even make it as far as the ladies tee.

The drive would leave him 420 yards left to the hole on the par 5. He’d go on to make a double bogey seven.
