Woods withdraws from Players with injury

Recommended Posts

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Tiger Woods has withdrawn from The Players Championship with an injury that he fears might be a bulging disk in his upper back.


He says he's been playing with a bad neck for about a month.


After hitting his drive well to the right on the seventh hole, Woods called for an official. He hit his second shot and grimaced, then walked to the middle of the fairway to shake hands with Jason Bohn before leaving on a golf cart.


Woods had his head bowed for several minutes as he sat in front of his locker and other times kept his eyes closed before answering questions from a couple of reporters.


He says he first felt the injury before the Masters and plans to have an MRI next week. Woods says he has felt a tingling sensation on his right side down to his fingers.

I would suspect that he had been either taking some sort of performing enhancing drugs in the past, or walking a fine line with it.


There will be very little surprise here if he tumbles quite a bit and becomes just an average pro golfer. I would be shocked if he falls to Duval type proportions, but not shocked that he'll battle injuries here and there, and start to lose his dominance all together.
