At the 2019 tournament, Woods saw those around him near the top of the leaderboard lose balls in the water at the par-3, 12th hole. With that, Woods would go on to win the tournament and his fifth green jacket.
This year at Augusta National, not so much. Tiger carded a 10! A 10. According to the PGA Tour, it's the highest score Woods has recorded in his professional career.
Here's how the hole went for Woods:

The only difference between me and Tiger Woods is that he follows his 10 with three birdies in four holes, while I simply head to the bar after a 10 pic.twitter.com/5b2vy6TMWy— Chris Callaway (@ccallaway33) November 15, 2020
I've been working for this for a long time but I can finally say that today, I am golfing better than tiger woods— Parmesan Lebron (@HTrucker69) November 15, 2020
Man, I remember when I shot a ball into the water twice while playing with @Wilburforce33. He looked at me and said "Are you done?" and I said no before shanking it into the woods.— DeadlySlob (@Deadlyslob) November 15, 2020
Looks like I'm the next Tiger Woods boys after that three ball water Number 12. #MastersGolf2020 pic.twitter.com/kJjrBdUuh8
I'm not sure I've ever been able to say I could do something in golf that Tiger Woods has done. But today he got a 10 on a par 3. That I can do. Thanks Tiger.— Steve Patterson (@patterballs) November 15, 2020
