Tiger puts three in the water

Tiger Woods has a highlight reel longer than any golfer who’s ever set foot on a fairway.

Suffice to say, this 60 seconds won’t be on it.

At Congressional Country Club to promote next month’s Quicken Loans National, the former world No.1 took three swings toward the 10th green, a 93m shot over water.

His first two shots went directly into the lake and the third landed on the slope and rolled in.

“That’s in the water,” he said after the first shot. “Boy was that stiff. Holy cow.”

Woods, 40, hasn’t played since August as he recovers from back surgeries. He said he has been playing more at home and hopes to play this summer but isn’t sure when he will be ready.

“See I need warm-ups,” he said after the third failed shot.

Maybe that might answer questions of those calling for his comeback to hasten.
