A four putt and X3 three putts for Tiger Wood’s third round at the 2022 Masters golf tournament. The brave and sterling effort by the x5 time former champion froze in the chilly conditions at Augusta National on Saturday. Tiger crucified on the Master’s greens to give it a suitably dramatic connotation. Scottie Scheffler led through the most part of the day by 5 shots, looking a cut above the rest of the pack. Cameron Smith continued to hit great shots and made more putts to hold down second place with a fine round of golf in challenging conditions.

Tiger Wood’s Master’s Hopes Torched on the Greens

It was cold and windy at the masters on Saturday. Players were rugged up against the elements in a bid to keep their ability to swing the club insulated from the cold. Tiger hit the ball from tee to green pretty solid but on the greens he was most un-Tiger like. Tiger shot a 78. The crowds continued to salute the great man with applause for his efforts in being out there in the first place. Shane Lowry, the Irishman, and fairly recent Open champion was on Scottie’s trail all day. Cam Smith got it to 7 under after the 15th just three back from Scottie Scheffler at 10 under.

The Cold Crucifying Tiger’s Master’s

Charl Schwartzel eagled the 10th and was in third place for much of the third day at the Masters. Justin Thomas continued to battle hard and was in the top ten on the leaderboard after the day’s play. The cold weather would have been bad news for Tiger’s gammy leg, as things like that seize up in cool conditions. It is a marathon effort for the great man and four days of intense competition in these conditions will sorely test him.

Cam Smith shoots a 68, which is the low Saturday round at the Masters. Smith is at 6 under par on the leaderboard in second place. Smith shone in these tough conditions to shoot a remarkable round of golf. Scheffler made a couple of bogeys late on his back nine to make things more interesting tomorrow. The green cathedral will be rocking on Sunday at Augusta National with plenty of goodly golf left to play. Sungjae Im came good late in his round to climb back up the leaderboard to finish in third place. A rare bad drive on the last hole by Scottie Scheffler found the foliage and forced a penalty drop. It was instructive to observe a professional taking a drop in these circumstances, as he checked the ground beneath the pine straw for tree roots with a tee. He hit a great recovery shot to limit the damage to a bogey.
