Tiger Woods #1 player was playing JB Holmes #16 player in the Accenture Match Play Championship. They play the high rank players against the low rank players so you have the best rising to the finals. They forgot to tell JB that this was an easy win for Tiger.
It was a JB who had Tiger down 3 with five holes to play. Tiger isn't one to give up. JB hits a long ball and out drove Tiger almost every time.
The story then goes as follows:
Hole 14 - 15' Birdie 2 down with 4 to play
Hole 15 - 18' Birdie 1 down with 3 to play
Hole 16 - 20' Birdie all square with 2 to play
Hole 17 - 35' Eagle 1 up with 1 to play
Hole 18 - Par JB misses Birdie - Tiger wins
Yes, that's 88' of putts on 4 holes, no wonder he's the #1 player in the world.
JB had an excellent response. “You’re playing the best player in the world, 3 up with 5 to play,” JB Holmes said. “I just said, ‘Don’t do anything stupid. Make him beat you.’ And he did. What do you do?”
