Tiger Woods blows up, makes a 10 after rinsing three balls in Rae’s Creek on Sunday at the Masters

Defending champion Tiger Woods made history during Sunday’s final round of the Masters, but for all the wrong reasons.

The 15-time major champion made a 10 – yes, you read that right, a 10 – on the par-3 12th hole after hitting three balls in Rae’s Creek in the heart of Augusta National’s Amen Corner.

That’s the highest score Woods has even taken on a hole in his PGA Tour career. His previous high? A nine at the 1997 Memorial, on the par-4 third hole in the third round. Before the 10? Woods had never made worse than eight – first round in 1999 on No. 8, third round in 2013 on No. 15 – in 22 past Masters starts

If there’s any silver lining for Woods, who immediately went from 3 under for the tournament to 4 over, it’s that his 10 isn’t the worst in No. 12’s history. Tom Weiskopf once posted a 13 at No. 12, named Golden Bell, in 1980.
