Well that’s one way to surrender your Masters title.

The defending champion made history during the final round of the 84th edition of the tournament, but for all the wrong reasons.

It all went horribly wrong for Woods on the infamous 12th hole

It should be noted Woods was out of contention for the title as he played the par-three 12th, a hole which was a key part of his memorable victory last April.

On that occasion it was rivals Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka, Ian Poulter and Tony Finau who all found the water in front of the green, but this time Woods did so an amazing three times on his way to a 10 – the highest single-hole score of his entire career.

After hitting his initial tee shot into Rae’s Creek, Woods took a penalty drop before hitting his next shot into the hazard, then another penalty drop before overcompensating and firing his fifth shot over the green into a bunker.

Faced with an awkward stance in the sand, Woods thinned his sixth shot back across the green into the water and eventually made it out with his eighth shot before two-putting from the fringe.

As The Masters enters its climax, it’s American Dustin Johnson who’s in the best position to claim the title.

Johnson leads by two with a score of -16, with Australia’s Cameron Smith second, meanwhile Rory McIlroy is fifth with -10.

Johnson is chasing his first ever triumph at The Masters.
