Tiger Woods was injured at the Masters when a security guard fell on his ankle trying to hold fans back
- Tiger Woods is making a run at the Masters and is just two strokes behind the leaders.
- Woods' run nearly suffered a major setback when a security guard slipped and fell on his ankle while trying to hold back fans.
- Woods was seen wincing in pain, limping, and trying to stretch out the ankle.
- He birdied that hole, and the next, and appeared to be OK after walking it off.
A scary moment hit the Masters when a security guard slipped and fell on Tiger Woods' ankle.
Woods was in the rough and hit another gorgeous recovery shot to the green on hole No. 14. After the swing, fans started to jockey for position to see the result, and security guards ran in to keep them back.
Unfortunately, it rained most of the day at Augusta National, and a security guard running behind Woods slipped on the grass and landed on Woods' ankle.
You can see a clear view of the collision on the replay.
Tiger never fell down, but he was limping and was seen trying to stretch the ankle out. The extent of the injury is unclear.
Woods eventually birdied the hole to move within two strokes of the lead, but it is unclear if the ankle injury will hinder Woods during the rest of the weekend.
