To anyone following Tiger Woods’ career, it is well known that 2010 was a bad year for the golfer. Starting with his controversy in 2009, Woods’ career took a major hit. Despite that, Woods still remains the greatest of all time. While he was in a rough patch, he still retained his skills.

During the 2010 BMW Championship, an announcer was commenting on Woods’ game, speaking of how it is unlikely that he would make the green. Woods had a very difficult approach shot and his chances of finding the green were highly unlikely. But, of course, Woods proved the commentator wrong. They were unable to believe what Woods just did, the green the size of a thimble from where the point they were at.

Of course, Woods made most of the shot and converted a terrific birdie.

He finished T13 that tournament, scoring one-under 283. While he played well enough, it was not up to the standards everyone was used to. That being said, another low point in 2010 was him pulling out of the Players Championship at Sawgrass due to his neck injury. Already having a bad year, a lot of people were not appreciative of his decision. He even failed to qualify for the Tour Championship.

Woods is currently recovering after his car crash earlier this year. There is no word on his return to the course just yet.
