Photographer Catches Errant Shot by Woods – Literally

Mail on Sunday photographer Mark Pain captured an amazing picture at the Ryder Cup of Tiger Woods hitting one of his now common duff shots.  I guess Tiger was playing in between the ropes after a bad tee shot, and while trying to chip out, he actually hit Pain’s camera because he flubbed the chip.  Check out the amazing pic below.

For a sports photographer this is like a 1 in a million shot.  Pain actually had enough time to react to Wood’s shot, and instead of getting out of the way he hunkered down and started snapping.  Woods didn’t have Stevie go and break the guy’s knees because they all agreed that the only reason Pain was in the way was because Tiger hit a sh*t shot.  It’s still hard thinking about Tiger hitting amateur shots like this, but it seems to be his new norm.  You’ve been wanting to get hit by Tiger too…
