The 15-time major winner is teeing it up in the Tour’s third signature event of the year, the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.

Woods had an up-and-down first round with five birdies and five bogeys on the card as he stood in the 18th fairway. He had just over 170 yards into the green, the ball was a bit below his feet and he pulled 8 iron.

What happened next was completely unexpected.

Tiger shanked it. Like, a mega shank.

If you’re uncomfortable with violent images, look away now.

Woods scrambled to make bogey and walked off the course after a 1-over 72 in the first round.

“Oh I definitely shanked it,” he said to reporters after the round while noting his back was spasming down the final stretch. “I came down and it didn’t move. I presented hosel first and shanked it.”

“It’s been awhile, definitely been awhile,” he said of his last shank. “Other than trying to hit flop shots and other kind of weird shots around the greens.”
