Tiger Woods‘ win in the WGC-Cadillac Championship was mostly a breeze. That is, until a palm tree got in the way. Woods pushed his tee shot just to the right of the fairway on the 17th hole in the third round at Doral, Fla., and his ball got lodged in a palm tree. Woods was on such a roll, he couldn’t even let the errant shot get in his way. The golfer was able to identify the ball was his, and he was able to take a drop by the tree rather having to go back to the tee to shoot again. Woods went on to win the tournament for his 17th World Golf Championship title. He never let anyone get closer than three shots before clinching. Woods closed with a 1-under-71 after two late bogeys. Woods has five wins in the past year, and this is the first time in five years he has two wins before the masters. Just one year ago, Woods withdrew from the same tournament after 11 holes with a left Achilles injury. Now he’s the favorite going into the Masters on April 11. Now he’ll just have to hope no one plants any palm trees in Augusta, Ga. Check out the video below of Woods’ shot getting stuck in the palm tree. Thumbnail photo via Facebook/Golf from B/R Photo of the Day Poor Brandon Knight. Why did DeAndre Jordan have to be so mean? Quote of the Day “When you can win like this, we can go home, we can breathe easier, food tastes better, it makes life a lot better.” – Ray Allen is enjoying the Heat’s 18-game win streak Tweet of the Day Why does time travel have to be so complicated? time traveler from 1991: "heh, Jordan made a monster jam? no doy!" /decomposes into carbon dust due to molecular exhaustion of time travel— Jon Bois (@jon_bois) March 11, 2013 Video of the Day Come on, Matt Calvert. It’s not supposed to look that easy.
