The American winced briefly and was evidently caught off guard by the whole episode.

Woods then managed to make a miraculous birdie from out of nowhere to put himself right into the thick of the action.
The 43-year-old recaptured stunning form and remains in contention on day two at Augusta
The 43-year-old is the second player to have won the career grand slam along with Jack Nicklaus and last took the green jacket in 2005.
An injury-hampered career very nearly saw Woods retire from the sport, though a resurgence in the last 12 months has put the former World No 1 firmly in contention.
