Tiger Woods Withdraws From Players Championship With Neck Injury

May 9, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Tiger Woods terrible year has taken another bad turn as he has withdrawn today (Sunday) from The Players Championship on the seventh hole with an apparent neck  injury. After hitting his tee shot on seven, he grimaced in pain, went down to hit his second shot, left it 20 yards short of the green and then called over an official. After consulting with the official, Woods walked over, picked up his ball, shook hands with playing partner Jason Bohn before leaving on a golf cart. Tiger was 2-over par through six holes in his final round when he made the decision to withdraw.

In a brief conference afterward Tiger gave the following details and indicated that he might have a bulging disk:

“I’ve been playing with a bad neck for quite a while,” Woods explained. “I’ve been playing through it. I can’t play through it any more.

“I’m having a hard time with the pain. There’s tingling down my fingers, on the right side.”

“It’s on the backswing, downswing, follow through. Setting up over the ball is fine, but once I start making the motion, it’s downhill from there.”

Word is he suffered the injury before the Masters, and now plans to have an MRI scan next week.  This opens the door for Phil Mickelson to become the tours number 1 player.

    I think that Tiger Woods returned to golf too soon. As a result, Tiger’s game has been suffering big time, his morale as well and now his health. Tiger needs to take time off from Golf until his personal life and health becomes more stable. This is what Elin wanted him to do and what Tiger initially said would do but he did not. The results of his hasty decision have been a disaster! It looks like if pay day is already here for Tiger or maybe Tiger is missing a good Swedish massage!!!
