What could be Tiger Woods’s last photo with beloved CBS announcer Verne Lundquist at the 2024 Masters tournament caught so much—and so little—at the same time.

On Sunday, the famed golfer was pictured shaking hands with Lundquist in what was Lundquist’s 40th and final Masters assignment at Augusta National. The resulting iconic photo will become legendary for more reasons than one.

Many on X (formerly known as Twitter) pointed out how Lundquist was almost completely obstructed by a tree trunk in the shot, making it seem as though Woods was shaking hands with, well, himself.

The odd framing of the photo made golf fans want to say, “Have you seen anything like that?”

The 48-year-old Woods shot a 77 on Sunday to finish 16-over 304 for the tournament, his highest 72-hole score in his professional career. The five-time champion’s previous high was 302 at the Memorial in 2015.
