There’s a lot of pressure that comes with participating in the annual Masters Tournament of golf. And when the 2022 tournament kicked off on Thursday, veteran golfer Tiger Woods was apparently feeling the heat because the hot mics picked up the living legend as he yelled “F—k off” at his golf ball at hole nine.
Compared to other sports, golfers often display traits like patience, concentration, and emotional management. Apparently, Tiger Woods’s golf ball got the better of him on Thursday as we heard on the Masters’ hot mics. Though in the midst of such a prestigious event, I suppose we can’t blame him. After all, it provided viewers with a brief moment of comic relief, not to mention it wasn’t as if he cussed out a spectator or a fellow golfer.
According to TMZ, Woods’ ill-timed comment came while attempting to hit his golf ball out of some pine straw. And while initially, the shot appeared to be a good one, it caught a slope and began rolling back toward the fairway.
Fortunately for Tiger Woods, the outlet reports he was able to save par on the hole and get things back on track by Hole 10.
