Tiger Woods Drops at Augusta National Golf Club

Tiger Woods Drops at Augusta National Golf Club

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Tiger has been handed a two-shot penalty for an improper drop during yesterday’s round at the Masters Tournament on the 15th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. It was bad luck the drop had to take place at all because his approach hit the pin and ricochet into the pond that fronts the green. What’s even more bad luck is that whatever the outcome, Tiger’s first major of the year will be tarnished. There are two schools of thought in regards to how he should proceed. The first, led by Brandel Chamblee, is that he should be disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard following the second round. The second, most notably argued by Fred Couples, is that he should play the weekend without any sort of penalty since the drop was reviewed by the powers that be at Augusta National and no shots were given while Tiger played the 18th. The guys in the green jackets split the difference and assessed Tiger a two-shot penalty, so he now stands at -1 through 36 holes heading into the weekend.

There are a lot of folks out there who believe Tiger should withdraw after this incident since, whatever the outcome, it shows a lack of character or conscience on Tiger’s part. It’s hard to argue that if Tiger does in fact win this weekend, that there wouldn’t be an asterisk next to the W*. If that happens and Tiger surpassed Jack Nicklaus’ eighteen major victories by one, what would that mean? Would there be an asterisk next to that record as well? It’s a tough position for Tiger and I would not want to be in the position he currently finds himself in this weekend at the Masters. On the plus side, it will make for great TV drama this weekend! Go Boom Boom!!!
