Tiger Woods Shoots Golf Ball Directly At Photographer’s Camera


Mail on Sunday photographer Mark Pain probably didn’t know whether to cheer or cry after taking this photo. On one hand, he snapped a great picture. On the other hand, he might be about to face an angry Tiger Woods.

Turns out that Mark did what most of us might’ve done in the same situation. He hoped his camera wasn’t too damaged, packed up his gear, and fled the scene before he wound up facing Woods’ wrath:


It’s worth noting that while “Woods was furious about his blunder, neither he nor caddie Steve Williams objected to Pain’s position.” This means that Pain wasn’t sticking his lens where it didn’t belong, but instead just happened to find himself in the path of a rogue golf ball. [Daily Mail]
