Tiger Ignites Memories Of Seve With Remarkable Left-Handed ‘Bush Shot’.

Tiger Woods brilliantly ignited memories of the late, great Seve Ballesteros in playing a recovery shot from the side of the green at the 10th hole on day two of the WGC – Dell Technologies Match-Play in Austin, Texas.

Woods second shot came to rest under small bush and just yards from the putting surface.

The former three-time event winner was in danger of falling 2-down in his match against fellow American Brandt Snedeker.

But then in a move that serves as a  reminder to those true followers of golf who remember the late, great Seve Ballesteros, Woods got down on both knees and turned around his right-handed wedge to knock the shot onto the green left-handed, and with Woods’ 60-foot ‘bush shot’ coming to rest just four feet from the cup from where he saved par and also saved the hole.

In the end, Woods was beaten 2 & 1 by Snedeker and now needs to defeat Patrick Cantlay if he’s to have any chance of progressing to Saturday morning’s last 16.

In fact, Woods also needs Aaron Wise to beat Snedeker and if he prevails over Cantlay, then the  80-time PGA TOUR winner would advance.

However, if  Snedeker should tie against Wise and Woods win, then a sudden death playoff would come between Woods and Snedeker.


Snedeker was asked after defeating Woods what he thought of his match against the 14-time Major winner.

“I’m probably the most hated man in Texas right now… I bet you my kids were probably rooting for him late in the round,” Snedeker joked.

“In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t really mean that much. I’ve got to go out and win tomorrow. As great as today was and as much fun as I’ve had, I’ve got to kind of reset my goals for tomorrow and make sure I’m doing the same thing I did this morning, which is tough to do.

“You want to look ahead and say, hey, I beat Tiger. (But) I’m not anywhere yet. I’ve got to go play great tomorrow and use this momentum today from a lot of good stuff late in the round and kind of take that out tomorrow.”
