Tiger Woods missed a put by an inch on the 11th hole of the PGA Championship. The long putt looked near-perfect, but Woods came up just short of a birdie. The golfer was bent over at the waist, clearly disappointed on the green at Bellerive Golf Course.
That very putt could change the day for Woods, who has been in contention since teeing off earlier this afternoon.
Although Woods appears to be recovering from the disappointing miss, social media was quick to respond with some pretty hilarious memes. You can see a few of them below.
‘That’s Your Home!’
The putt brought back some serious memories from Happy Gilmore starring Adam Sandler.
“Son of a b*tch ball. Why didn’t you just go home? That’s your home! Are you too good for your home? Answer me!” Sandler says in the film when his ball is sitting on the edge of the hole.
Everybody Jump, Jump!
Perhaps the most obvious thing to do when a golf ball is teetering on the edge of a hole is to run up to it and try to blow it in. Of course, that’s cheating, but, if the wind just happened to blow in the right direction at the right time — or if Woods could have gotten all of the spectators to jump at the same time — maybe, just maybe, his ball would have toppled into the hole.
So Close, Yet So Far
Several other memes poked fun at just how “close” the ball was to the hole. The person above thought of a clever way to use Woods’ missed putt in a clever way.
Maybe This Is Karma
And then, of course, came the relationship jokes. At least one person commented that Woods didn’t deserve to make the putt because he and Lindsey Vonn couldn’t hang on to their relationship.
The Feeling Is Mutual
Literally everyone watching the PGA Championship has experienced that feeling of utter defeat. If nothing else, it shows that Woods is relatable.
Those cheering for Woods have been on the edge of their seats, hoping that he can pull something off before the end of the Tour. Of course, that putt on Hole 11 didn’t help anyone’s anxiety.
