AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- In what was a truly scary moment considering other injuries and maladies he's had in the past few years, Tiger Woods almost fell because of a GBI agent's attempts to protect him from a crowd.

On the 14th hole, Tiger was walking away from a crowd after making a shot onto the green when an agent ran to shield him from happy patrons.

But due to wet conditions, the agent slid into Tiger's ankle.


In a tournament already seeing drama due to Tiger's dramatic play, an injury to one of the game's star players on something accidental as this would have been an even bigger shock.
