Tiger Woods has various fond memories relating to the Masters. The 15-time major championship winner has won the event five times in his career. Moreover, Tiger shares a special bond with Augusta national, being his first major win. But, back in 2020, he had a bitter moment at the Masters, one he would surely like to forget.

Tiger Hitting Shots that Prove He is the Greatest Ever

Woods has won several times at the Augusta National. He has a total of five green jackets from the first time winning in the year 1997. His recent one came in the year 2019. However, what happened next year in 2020, on the par-three 12th hole is a memory Tiger Woods like to erase. His meltdown on the 12th hole proves that probably even the sports’ greatest players do often find it difficult or hit bad shots.

The 46-year-old professional had a rather tough Sunday at Augusta back in 2020. It might be the one he would like to forget due to his meltdown on the 12th hole.

Tiger was cruising nicely in the first few rounds of the 202o Masters. However, he seemed to struggle early in the last round at Augusta. The 15-time major championship winner suffered an absolute meltdown on the par-three, 12th hole. The 12th hole is a par three measuring 155 yards and Tiger made a 10 on the hole. The first-ever 10 of his professional career.
