One of the most dramatic moments of a Wild Friday at the Masters came after Tiger Woods hit an incredible second shot from the trees at the 14th hole that landed on the putting green.
Because the ball was soaring towards the green, Tiger and the fans who were close to him all moved to see where the ball was going. It was then that a security guard rushed to make sure Tiger was safe, but slipped on the sodden ground and seemed to cut off Tiger's ankle while He disappeared.
Tiger limped for a few seconds when the Internet panicked, then headed for the green and sank the birdie putt, to the delight of the security guards.
