Tiger Woods: ‘There Was Blood Everywhere’

Fore right!

Even the greatest golfer on the planet occasionally sprays a drive. In a marvelous match yesterday against Aaron Baddeley at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Tiger Woods pushed his tee shot at the par-4 13th and bonked a marshal on the head. Tiger's ball bounced off and rolled into the desert. After taking an unplayable lie, he lost the hole.

Meanwhile, the marshal lost some blood, although Tiger said he was OK.

“He was totally alert,” Woods was quoted as saying. “There was blood everywhere. I didn't see any knot. He said he was fine.”

Maybe the marshal felt better after Tiger gave him a glove.

Today Tiger dispatched K.J. Choi and Henrik Stenson. Tomorrow he faces Stewart Cink in the 36-hole final.

Occasionally????? That's like saying that my dogs occasionally like a little doggie treat after their supper.

I still think he is the best golfer in the world. I saw him play mount juliet ( in 2004 and he pulled off golf shots like I had never seen before - I think he is getting better this year ... less predictible and more technically excellent. Go Tiger - Go!!

That was a pretty bloody scene when the marshall got hit. Tiger couldn't see him and vice versa.

Tiger's putting stroke has looked simply amazing this year. He has just a single 3 putt all year and those green at The Gallery are gigantic.
