How Tiger Woods made a 10 on the 12th hole at The Masters in 2020...

Tiger Woods has won five Green Jackets in his career, but The Masters has not always been the kindest venue to the 15-time major champion.

In the re-scheduled Masters tournament in November 2020, Woods stepped on to the 12th tee box in the final round in his Sunday red.

He wasn't in contention to challenge the eventual winner Dustin Johnson and his score wasn't even in the red by the time he reached the 13th hole.

Woods' first tee shot landed short of the famous 158-yard hole and bounced down into Rae's Creek. The 46-year old had to take a drop in front of the stream.

In scenes reminiscent of Jordan Spieth's collapse in 2016, Woods hit his ball on to the putting surface but it rapidly spun backwards and into the creek again.

His fifth shot went into the back bunker and quite incredibly, Woods hit his bunker shot through the green and into the water for the third time.

He managed to tickle his eighth shot out of the bunker on to the front of the green. He two-putted from there for a 10. 7-over-par on one hole.

This is the highest score the 82-time PGA Tour winner has ever made at The Masters and his highest ever score on the PGA Tour. His previous highest mark was an eight which he had done twice previously at Augusta.

Woods is set to walk the course this week at Augusta National before he makes his decision on competing at this year's event.

He is still on the entry list which features on the official Masters website and he has recently been seen hitting drives at Medalist Golf Club in Florida.
