Tiger Woods proved he is far from a has bin by getting down and dirty picking his ball out of a pile of rubbish.
The 15-time Major champion finished dead last in the Genesis Invitational in LA last weekend.
It was the 11th time Woods has played at the famed Riviera course – where he made his PGA Tour debut as a 16-year-old – but never won.

His weekend scores of 76-77 – a combined 11 over par – were a pile of trash compared to winner Adam Scott, who finished on 11 under.
And his scoring was reflected perfectly in a bizarre scene on the third hole of the final round.
Woods smashed his tee shot on the par-4 – his 12th hole of the day – miles left.
He thought it had gone into the thick rough but one fan captured the moment Woods discovered his ball at the bottom of a bin.
Woods, 44, had to identify the ball to make sure it was his.
And he seemingly thought nothing of delving into the pile of other people’s litter to dig out his Bridgestone ball.
From there he took a drop, hacked the ball up near the green and then chipped and putted to save par.
It capped off a dismal week for tournament host Woods, who also four-putted from just 20ft.
There are fears Woods may be struggling physically, as he said he felt a little stiff on only his second outing of the year.
Woods is not playing next week’s WGC-Mexico Championship, and was tight-lipped about his schedule after that.
He said his priority was to peak in April at the Masters, where he will defend his Green Jacket at Augusta National.
In explaining his decision to skip Mexico, he said he was a “little rundown” and did not feel it wise to tee up two weeks in a row just now.
He said:”I feel stiff, but I have weeks like that, especially in the cold mornings like it was the other day.”
