Tiger Woods insists his Players Championship campaign is far from over despite racking up a disastrous quadruple-bogey 7 at TPC Sawgrass' par-3 17th.
The 14-time major winner had commentators flabbergasted when he recorded a score that would make even weekend amateurs blush - hitting two balls in the water surrounding the island green at TPC Sawgrass' signature hole.
Starting his second round on the 10th, Woods overcooked his tee shot at 17 and it bounced over the back of the putting surface and into the water.
The two-time Players winner then hit his third shot from the drop area, but it came out "too flat and too hot" and also found the water.
With his fifth shot, Woods finally found the green and two-putted for a 7 only moments after he had come within two shots of the lead.
Woods had never put two consecutive balls in the water at No.17 and only found the water there four times in 16 previous appearances at the Players.
"I was pretty ticked, no doubt about that," Woods admitted after his round.
"The first (shot) from the regular tee was good; it just flew a little bit too far."
Woods had surged into contention with three early birdies before his quadruple-bogey, but kept his composure with a two-under front nine (his back nine) to post a 71 and a three-under total.
"I was determined to get it all back and get it back to five (under); I thought that would have been a hell of a fight," he said.
"I just need to go out there and put it together this weekend."
Although well back of the lead, the 80-time PGA Tour winner predicted a volatile weekend at TPC Sawgrass with a forecasted change in wind direction and colder weather.
"Anyone who makes the cut has a chance to win this golf tournament," Woods said.
