The red shirt is the one Woods wore during the final round of the tournament that saw him make his historic return after his “Thanksgiving night festivities,” the events that forced him into a four-month hiatus from professional golfing.
“The 2010 Masters marked Tiger’s return to golf after his infamous 2009 Thanksgiving car crash and resulting fallout. Despite not playing golf since that fateful day, Tiger was back. The fact that he was in contention seemed largely irrelevant, yet ended up adding to his legend,” the shirt’s description reads on the Golden Age Auctions website.
“It is our understanding that this may be the only Sunday Red Shirt from the Masters Tournament in private hands, and the only obtained directly from Tiger’s exclusive memorabilia partner Upper Deck Authenticated.”
Woods ended the 2010 Masters T4 with K.J. Choi of South Korea.
Bids on the shirt had reached almost $60,000 Friday afternoon.
The auction closes Saturday at 8 p.m.
“The Tiger Sunday Red Shirt offered in this auction is, perhaps, the finest such example that will ever reach the auction block,” the description reads.
“Thankfully Tiger gave this shirt to Upper Deck. When doing so, Tiger added a massive autograph underneath the inscription ‘2010 Masters Final Round.'”
