March 1 (UPI) -- While playing The Honda Classic tournament on Thursday, Tiger Woods decided to go for a barefoot shot after sending the ball into the water hazard. The 14-time major winner removed his shoes and socks and put on his rain pants for the incredible water shot which ended up helping him save an even-par 70 in the first round of the tournament.
Woods' even-par landed the golfer in the 61st place of the Honda Classic where he is tied with Rory McIlroy, who is currently ranked as the world's number one golfer.
