Tiger Woods Disqualified For Letting Daughter Putt At Masters Par-3 Competition
After announcing that he would indeed compete in this year’s Masters, Tiger Woods decided to take part in his first par-three competition since 2004. However, Woods did not take the competition serious. Instead, it was more like a family day, as his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn tagged along and his two children were his caddies.
And he cemented this carefree mentality, when he allowed his daughter, Sam, to putt for him. This resulted in the voiding of his three under score, as he was disqualified.
Tiger Woods has officially been DQ'd from the Par-3 Contest. Nope, didn't take a bad drop. He let his daughter tap in a putt for him.

Still, it was a cool father-daughter moment as him and the crowd cheered the 7-year-old on for hitting the chip-in putt.
Kevin Streelman ended up winning the par-three competition. But the talk of the contest has to be Jack Nicklaus’ hole-in-one.
