Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golf players of all time. And he has proved it repeatedly, be it his sensational 2008 U.S. Open victory 0r the emphatic comeback win at the Augusta National in the 2019 Masters. Moreover, the amount of hard work which he did behind all this success is also unbelievable.

The shot that Tiger Woods calls “the best feeling shot”

Even though Tiger Woods has smashed thousands of extraordinary shots throughout his career, only a handful of them remain his personal favorite. In round two of the 2002 PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club, Tiger smashed an iron shot from the fairway burner on the 18th hole to close out his round two with a birdie.

Tiger had an awkward lie in the bunker. The ball was below his feet, which meant getting the impact right was even more difficult. Moreover, there was a tall tree right in front of him. And he had to go above them to reach the green. But the problem was the pin location was about 220 yards away from him, making it even more strenuous.  

However, Tiger flushed a 3-iron and not only got the ball over the trees but astonishingly also landed the ball just 10 ft away from the pin. Meanwhile, getting this kind of loft and distance at the same time from 3-iron from such an awkward lie makes this shot even more impressive. And hence, even after playing thousands of shots after that event, Tiger Woods still calls this shot as “the best feeling shot” of his career.
