We saw Tiger Woods meeting the neighbors at Bay Hill in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but the story of how his tee shot on No. 15 ended up in someone's yard was even more interesting. Woods' drive was left of left, a huge pull that he didn't even bother tracking after he hit it. Immediately, he dropped his club and looked on in disgust, a sign of how terrible the shot was.
However, this wasn't a case of Woods just making a bad swing. It was a hilarious sequence of events unfolding just off camera that caused the wayward drive.
After the round, Woods explained what happened on the tee. He later found out a kid fainted just as he was making his downswing, causing a lady to scream in horror. The scream threw him off -- understandably -- and his tee shot flew over a pool and into a yard, where the homeowners gathered around the ball for a photo op.
And a GIF:
He went on to card a double-bogey on the hole, cutting his lead to just one stroke. It's enough to make you wonder if the golf gods are just angry at Tiger for whatever reason.
The kid was fine, as far as we know. So was the lady, Woods, and his golf club. Woods' scorecard, however, was left smarting.
