Tiger Woods was trying to overcome a lot this week in his return to the US PGA Tour. There’s that whole fused back he’s still getting used to. The rust he’s attempting to knock off due to a lack of competition. And he’s taking on a Torrey Pines course capable of giving anyone fits.
But it was an overzealous fan who provided Woods with his most trying moment during Sunday’s final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. On the par-5 13th, Tiger gave himself a great look at birdie, but right as he began bringing his putter forward to strike his golf ball, someone screamed, “GET IN THE HOLE!” And everyone watching yelled a collective, “C’MON, MAN!”
Not surprisingly, Woods missed the putt. And he was NOT happy. Check out the clip from PGA Tour Live:

You may have noticed Andre Iguodala in the background. We can confirm (obviously) it wasn’t the Golden State Warriors star who yelled, but we hope he personally saw to the removal of the rowdy fan. In fact, we hope that bozo gets a lifetime ban from attending US PGA Tour events. Or worse. . .
Sources close to Tracker say that fan has been escorted to the Pit of Misery.

To Tiger’s credit, he responded by birdieing his next hole (Thanks to everyone left in the crowd for not screaming until after he putted). Technically, that won’t register as a “bounceback” birdie in Woods’ official US PGA Tour stats, but we’re counting it as one. Keep grinding, Tiger.
