We’ll see that 3-iron from the bunker a few times this week as the PGA Championship returns to Hazeltine National, site of Tiger Woods’ towering approach from a left bunker during the delayed second round in 2002.
“It was probably just the most pure shot I've ever hit. Just felt like when guys hit a home run, describe a home run, how easy it felt, even though it went 460 feet. It just felt effortless; that's how that shot felt,” Woods said.
That 8-iron from 178 yards at the 16th hole on Sunday at Firestone for a tap-in birdie probably won’t unseat that Minnesota masterpiece anytime soon, but it was pretty good.
“When I hit it I knew it was going to be a good one,” Woods said.
