THE trademark Tiger Woods fist-pump could have become a punch quickly.
Either an overeager or idiotic fan let out an early "Get in the hole!" as Woods was striking a 10-foot putt on 13 at the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday.
What could have been his first birdie of the day became a par and left Woods in silent fury, while the rest of the fans were louder about their anger.
"Throw him out!" came shouts from the gallery. It was not immediately clear who the screamer in question was.
Woods, who raised in arm in bewilderment and briefly put his head in his hands, would quickly bounce back, though. He got a birdie on 14, and through 11 he was in a tie for 19th at 5-under. While Woods is not in contention, a sustained comeback looks more and more plausible with each healthy swing.
It's a sight most - but perhaps not all - are enjoying.
