Watch: Tiger Woods holes out for eagle with incredible shot
Tiger Woods had an incredible stretch of play at the WGC-Match Play on Friday, and the highlight came when he made a shot from the fairway that resulted in an eagle.
Woods found himself 1 down in his match against Patrick Cantlay heading into the 11th hole, and he birdied the par-3 to square the match. He then birdied the 12th hole to take a 1-up lead, and he went 2-up with an eagle on the 13th. He accomplished that feat with an absolutely perfect second shot from the fairway that looked like it was on a string.

Tiger had yet another birdie on the 14th to go 3 up with four holes remaining.
Woods entered the match against Cantlay with a record of 1-1 in group play, so he needed a win to advance to the knockout stage. That four-hole stretch was a perfect example of why he is so tough to beat, and Phil Mickelson could tell you all about how quickly Tiger can turn things around in match play.
