PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla – For the first time in his career at the Players Championship, Tiger Woods placed two balls in the water on par-3 hole 17, which damaged a great start in his second round.
Woods took his first shot in a hole surrounded by water with a short iron, as it was long and left and combined with water. The hole is playing 146 yards. Then from the 100-yard drop area, it was reproduced, leading to a quadruple-bogey 7 – his highest score in 69 holes in the TPC Stadium course. Woods took the penalty drops after each ball of water and then two-putted from 20 feet.
This is the only ball in the water in the hole at that point.
