@fredontv tweeted, "Note to self: mute Masters coverage when Tiger is on screen and 5th grade daughter is in the room."

Not only that, the world's former No. 1 player played awful Saturday, unable to keep any decorum, screaming "God dammit" and slamming clubs on tee boxes, violently hooking his drives left, seemingly hitting out of trees more than the fairway.

"watchin Tiger hit a bad shot is like watchin Youkilis strike out. whatever happened to sportsmanship?  " -- 

Tiger Woods has become a shell of even the player that won two weeks ago.

Despite starting off with back-to-back birdies on No. 3 and 4, Woods simply lost his composure and finished with a disappointing even-par 72 Saturday, eight shots back, seemingly out of contention.

"It is moving day at the  and tiger is standing still." -- 

He hit many great shots, many of his birdie putts burning the edge (like on 14), many of his scrambling shots near perfection (like on 11).

After his bogey on six, nothing went right for him -- and his attitude just exasperated his frustrations more. With nine straight pars to close out the round, as  put it, Tiger is "done with the masters."

"pains me to see tiger play this bad " -- 

Woods' most telling stat for the first three rounds may be this: Woods had no birdies on par 5s today, fourth time in his Masters career, but second time this week.

Woods is also three of nine on sand saves and hit less than 60 percent of greens in regulation and fairways this week.

Twitter throughout the day showed great support for Woods, most wanting him to become the greatest of all time again.

"Cant hide my disappointment at Tiger not winning the masters ! Still the G.O.A.T" -- 

"I was hoping for a low score today out of Tiger to make things a bit more interesting for Sunday " -- 

Despite the score, Woods hit a lot of great putts and chips this week. However, his club kicking on 16 Friday will be what people remember Woods for at the 2012 Masters.

And maybe his lasting legacy.

" he's acting like a spoiled brat who's not getting his away. Golf is hard Tiger! The club kick on #16 yesterday was childish!" --
