Security guard almost takes out Tiger Woods during Masters

Apr 12, 2019, 4:52 PM

Tiger Woods is having a pretty good start to the Masters, but it all could have been for naught because of one already infamous slip from a security guard.

Tiger, following an approach shot on the 14th hole on Friday, was clipped in the ankle by a security guard who was trying to keep fans away.

Tiger limped away in pain, but thankfully it ended up only being temporary.

The contact may have even helped the 14-time major tournament winner.

He went on to birdie the hole and sits at minus-6 after two rounds, one stroke off the lead.

Lets, uh, not put Tiger’s health in jeopardy again in what’s shaping up to be one heck of a Masters weekend.
