Even though he was four back of the leader heading into the final day of the 2013 Masters, many believed that Tiger Woods would find some miraculous way to pull off the victory. Unfortunately, that was far from the case as Adam Scott ended up winning the Masters as he was forced to go into a playoff against Angel Cabrera.
As for Woods–he has nobody to blame but himself for falling short of winning the big tournament.
When looking back at the tournament, there were numerous occasions in which Woods would have been in better shape–especially the two-stroke penalty he received prior to Sunday–and considering he finished in fourth place shows just how close he was to winning the event. Even on Sunday, there were numerous shots that could have played a major difference in Woods’ final score.
Give Scott all of the credit in the world for becoming the first Australian to win the Masters, but this was an event Woods could have easily come out on top have the argument can be made that he should have. With the way Woods has been playing lately, there’s no question he was arguably the hottest golfer in the world heading into the Masters considering how well he’s performed in his recent events and with a better performance on Sunday other than two-under Par 70–he could have easily won this big event.
Instead, Woods is left with the rest of the golfers wondering what could have been when it comes to this year’s Masters.
