No. 13 crashes semis in Tiger Moments Match Play


The top three seeds have advanced to the Final Four of the Tiger Woods’ Greatest Moments Match Play. They are joined by lucky No. 13.

Woods’ approach shot to the final hole of the 2000 Canadian Open has crashed the semifinals with a victory over his post-victory hat slam at the 2008 Bay Hill Invitational, the 12th seed.

Here’s the way your voting turned out during the quarterfinals:

(1) 2008 U.S. Open def. (9) 2001 Masters (84.16% to 15.84%)
(13) 2000 Canadian Open def. (12) 2008 Bay Hill Invitational (53.54% to 46.46%)

Semifinal No. 1

Tiger’s 6-iron from a fairway bunker on the par-5 18th at Glen Abbey has been on an upset run, first disposing of the No. 4 seed, his finger-pointing reaction to a playoff birdie at the 2000 PGA Championship, and then knocking off a fellow longshot in the quarterfinals.

But now it faces the top overall seed.

Tiger’s emotional outburst after forcing a Monday playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open has routed its first two opponents, including garnering nearly 92 percent of the vote in Round 1.

Semifinal No. 2

The lower half features a more traditional Final Four matchup with the Nos. 2 and 3 seeds squaring off, pitting a pair of Tiger’s most memorable moments at Augusta National against one another.

Woods has won the Masters four times. His most recent triumph involved the second seed, his dynamic chip-shot on the 16th hole in the final round in 2005. His first triumph involved the third seed, hugging father Earl after his historic run in 1997.

You know the moments well. It’s now time for you to vote on which two will make it to the finals:
