2011 Masters: Two 3 Putts May Kill Tiger's Chances
If there is a momentum killer in golf, it is the three putt.
So far today, Tiger has had two 3-putts. Both 3-putts occurred on par-3s. Both 3-putts turned a par into a bogey.
Tiger's second 3-putt occurred after he missed a three-footer for par.
That is two strokes, minimum, that Tiger has given away today. That is the difference between being tied for the lead and being two strokes back, which is where Tiger currently sits.
If Tiger hopes to win this thing, he needs to get his putter under control. He simply cannot afford to miss putts anymore, especially par putts of any length.
Tiger now heads to a stretch of birdie holes. Hopefully he is able to make up the difference.
If Tiger does not win, however, he can point to his putter as the reason why. Missing putts does not equal winning major championships, especially at Augusta National Golf Club.
