‘So bad’: Golf world in uproar over ‘pathetic’ Tiger Woods scenes

The golfing world’s obsession with Tiger Woods hit bizarre new heights in round two of the Masters, with fans hitting out in anger at the coverage around the American star.

Woods’ extraordinary comeback to the sport has dominated this year’s tournament at Augusta National, with the five-time champion continuing to defy the odds after almost losing a leg in a horror car crash 14 months ago.

The 46-year-old hadn’t played a professional event since November 2020 and shot a one-under par 71 in his opening round to leave fans speechless.

However, the 15-time major winner got off to a nightmare start in the second round as he bogeyed four of his first five holes before seemingly steadying the ship with a birdie on the eighth.

While Woods was struggling through the tough conditions at Augusta, World No.1 Scottie Scheffler emphatically underlined his newly acquired status with a stunning five-under 67 to take a five-shot lead at the halfway stage.

Despite second round charges from several of Woods’ rivals, broadcasters were determined to keep their focus on the man whose comeback had captured the world’s imagination.

However, that approach reached farcical levels midway through Woods’ second round when broadcasters cut away from showing shots of several players in contention to focus on the American star eating a sandwich during a break in play.

The head-scratching decision by broadcasters left viewers fuming on social media, with many claiming the obsession around Woods had gone too far.
