Tiger Woods Kicks Club at the Masters

Last Friday during the second round of the Masters, Tiger Woods kicked his golf club out of frustration. On Saturday, he apologized for the act.

"Certainly, I'm frustrated at times and I apologize if I offended anybody by that," Woods said. "But I've hit some bad shots and it's certainly frustrating at times not hitting the ball where you need to hit it."

During the incident, Woods while on the 16th hole last Friday, was seen to drop his 9-iron to the ground at the 16th and kicked it for around 10 yards after a frustrating shot which took the ball far from the hole where he wanted it to be.

The next day, in the third round, his struggles continued as he posted only an even-par 72 to scores of 72 and 75 to all and eventually fell out of contention in the Augusta National.

The last time Woods failed to break par in any round at Augusta was in 2007 - although at that time, he was able to come in tied at second place.

Currently, Tiger Woods ranked 40th in the Masters. This is Woods' first major championship of the year.
