Tiger Woods: ‘There Was Blood Everywhere’

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.
