GOLF WORLD: Tiger Woods Recalls the Lowest Round of His Golfing Career That No One Saw.

The golf world today might not be what it is without Tiger Woods. Starting out over two decades ago, Woods has simply grown with the game, some of his most memorable rounds being his Masters’ appearances. That being said, Woods’ best round was apparently a little while before his 1997 Master win, which remains forever iconic.

 

 

As per the PGA Tour icon himself, the best round of his career took place when no one saw it. The scorecard was lost during renovations, and so was Woods’ apparently historic feat.

While speaking with Golf Digest, Woods went into detail about his round. Extremely unexpected, it is what made sure Woods was set apart even back then.

“We teed off on the back nine. I parred 10. Birdied 11 and 12. Eagled 13. Birdied 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 1. I had a 3-iron into No. 3, the par 5, and I made par.”

He added that while he used an iron at seventh, he still made par. However, the scorecard at the Isleworth clubhouse was lost during the renovation in 2004.

What makes it special is that Woods himself never shot 59 again. He never even shot 60, but only had a few 61s. Four were on tour, the last one being at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in 2013.

The next day, Woods and Mark O’Meara teed off, where the 82-time PGA Tour winner sank a hole-in-one at 11. O’Meara just left after that, refusing to play Woods at all.

The day mentioned was April 4th, which was before Woods’ iconic Master win. He was at the aforementioned Isleworth Country Club, his home course. As he did often, Woods was playing a friendly round with a friend, who also somewhat worked as his mentor.
