Tiger woods crazy shot at 2010 masters tournament wmv

The 2010 Masters Tournament was the 74th Masters Tournament, played April 8–11 at Augusta National Golf Club. Phil Mickelson won his third Masters and fourth major title, three shots ahead of runner-up Lee Westwood.



The Masters has the smallest field of the major championships. Officially the Masters remains an invitation event, but there is now a qualification process. In theory, the club could simply decline to invite a qualified player. This is the list of the 96 players who played in the 2010 Masters Tournament. Each player is classified according to the first category by which he qualified, but other categories are shown in parentheses.

First round

Thursday, April 8, 2010

The day started very sunny, but clouds began accumulating later in the morning and thunderstorms were expected in the afternoon; however, the weather remained fair. The much anticipated return of Tiger Woods came on Thursday, who shot a 4-under 68. This was a good opening for Woods, who had never before shot a first round in the 60s at the Masters. But the story of the day was the two Champions Tour players, 60-year-old Tom Watson and 50-year-old Fred Couples, who shot 67 and 66 respectively. Major champions Phil Mickelson and Y.E. Yang were one stroke back of leader Couples along with Lee Westwood, K.J. Choi, and Watson.

Second round

Friday, April 9, 2010

Phil Mickelson shot a 1-under 71 despite missing a 1-foot putt on Hole 5. Fred Couples and Tom Watson both fell back after solid opening rounds. Englishmen Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter shared the lead heading into the weekend.

Amateurs: Manassero (+3), Smith (+5), Benjamin (+6), An (+11), Han (+11), Martin (+11).

Third round

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Lee Westwood continued his solid play in the third round to stay in the lead. Phil Mickelson shot a 67, including a dramatic eagle-eagle-birdie on 13, 14 and 15, to move into second place, three strokes clear of the rest of the field.

Final round

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Fred Couples mounted an early charge up the leaderboard with two birdies in his first three holes, but he quickly cooled off and ended up in sixth place. Overnight leader Lee Westwood started erratically, while Phil Mickelson parred his first seven holes. K.J. Choi was briefly tied for the lead at -12 with a birdie at 10 but he eventually fell back to a tie for fourth with playing partner Tiger Woods (they were paired together for all four rounds of the tournament). Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Kim shot a blistering 65, including a -5 run over four holes; he finished third. But down the stretch, Mickelson pulled away from Westwood with a bogey-free round of 67 to win the tournament.

Amateurs: Manassero (+4).
