From the professional ranks to the most casual player that exists, every golfer has missed their fair share of chip-in puts. However, there are only a select few that have missed a chip-in put that cost them $9 million. Tiger Woods just joined that dubiously exclusive club with a brutal miss in his one-on-one matchup against Phil Mickelson that has since been dubbed "The Match."
Seriously, a kid with a mini-golf club has a good chance at making that.
If Tiger made that putt, he would have won "The Match" and taken home the $9 million purse. Instead, he ended up tied with Mickelson through 18 holes, forcing a playoff. Mickelson won on the 22nd playoff hole.
It's a shame that Tiger couldn't prevail, because he was showing flashes of the same child prodigy that ruled the sport for a decade.
The Tiger-Phil match was wildly entertaining and a great showcase of the sport, even if it could have ended completely differently if a legend didn't miss a short putt that your dad could have made.
