Tiger Woods delivered on his final-round prediction at the 2012 Memorial Tournament, as told by PGA Tour pro Scott Stallings during a recent interview with GOLF's SubPar episode.
Woods called exactly what would unfold in the final round at Muirfield Village, and it was the "most impressive thing" Stallings says he has ever seen on the PGA Tour.
Stallings and Woods were paired together for the third round that week and it marked the first time Stallings had ever played a round with his childhood hero.
After what turned into something of a lacklustre round for both of them on Saturday as they trudged down the fairway on the final hole, Stallings recalls a conversation he had with Woods.
Stallings, who shot a round of 75, was initially left baffled by the comments of Woods, who shot a round of 73.
"He said, ’67 and I’ll see you in a playoff,'" said Stallings of his conversation with Woods.
"I said, ‘Bro, we’re in like 18th.’ He said, ‘The wind is switching. We’re gonna go out a little bit earlier — I think 67 gets into a playoff. I think that’ll be good enough with how the course is gonna play.'"
As it turned out, Woods was bang on the money as he went on to shoot a final round of 67 and it was good enough to win by two shots over Rory Sabbatini and Andres Romero.
"It was the most impressive thing I've ever seen on Tour," revealed Stallings, who unfortunately went on to shoot a round of 77 to finish tied 25th.
It just goes to show Woods' level of belief that a tournament was never over until it was over, and likely explains the PGA Tour record-tying 82 win count.
