Tiger Woods nearly misses tap-in putt at the PGA Championship

If there is one thing that Tiger Woods never does, it's make a truly mental mistake on the golf course. He will miss his fair share of shots, but he always takes his time over shots, no matter if they're for eagle or triple-bogey.

On Friday at the PGA Championship, that nearly changed. Woods just missed a birdie putt on No. 9, the hole he double-bogeyed on Thursday to finish his round, and went to tap it in for his par.

Woods went one-handed with the tap in, and stubbed his putter into the turf before it hit the ball. His putter did eventually hit the ball, and it barely trickled in from just a few inches away.

It was a close call, but still a par for Woods, who is trying to make a comeback in his second round at Oak Hill.
