Yes, you read that correctly, a four-putt from Tiger Woods

If you were to list the top 3 putters of all time, the likelihood is that you would have Tiger Woods featuring on that list, with the 15-time Major winner producing some of the most iconic and clutch putting performances and moments of all time.

However, at the par 4 5th at Augusta National, the 46-year-old had a brief blip which saw Tiger four-putt! Yes, a four putt, in a moment that made all club golfers around the globe go: "I can do that!"

Making his return after a 14 month lay-off following a serious car crash, Tiger produced a miraculous first round at The Masters, with a one-under-par 71 putting him inside the top 10.

Despite a 74 second round, Tiger was still looking strong for an exceptional finish, with a bogey-birdie start to his third day keeping him at level-par for his round. 

What followed at the 5th though perhaps replicates that of a Sunday morning tournament at your local club, with Tiger's first putt along Augusta Nationals undulating greens leaving him a six-footer for par.

However, following his second putt missing on the left-side, the five-time Green Jacket winner went to tap-in for his bogey. Unfortunately, Tiger then horseshoed that attempt as he duly stroked it home for a four-putt and double-bogey six!
