Tiger withdraws from Players Championship
WRAL ^ | May 9, 2010

Posted on 05/09/2010 9:35:05 AM PDT by NCjim

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the Players Championship with an apparent injury on the seventh hole of the final round.

After hitting his tee shot on No. 7 far right Sunday, Woods called over an official. He hit his second shot and grimaced in apparent pain again.

Woods then walked to the middle of the fairway to shake hands with playing partner Jason Bohn before leaving on a golf cart.

Early reports say it is a neck injury and he will not play any further.

The pain in the neck has been identified as philanderitis, with a resulting elinflammation of the neck and right rear hip.

Tiger Woods says neck has been problem since before Masters

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/gameon/post/2010/05/tiger-woods-wont-win-will-he-keep-no-1/1

Final round of The Players: Tiger Woods began his final round of The Players Championship on Sunday at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., 10 shots out of the lead held by Lee Westwood. He opened with two pars, then bogeyed No. 3 to fall to 3 under, 11 shots back.

But, to lose his No. 1 ranking — which he has held for 258 consecutive weeks, and 598 weeks overall — Woods has to finish lower than fifth and Phil Mickelson has to win. Woods clearly will finish lower than fifth, and Mickelson will begin the final round tied for 11th, five shots back.

with an apparent injury on the seventh hole

Only seven holes this time? He's slipping.

He’d be a lot better off if he had withdrawn after the 7th hold in his personal life.

He must not be “relaxing” enough before matches. Seriousley though, despite his skill, and long before the bimbo incident, he was bringing the game of golf down with his behavior.

Police Taser drunk fan who heckled Tiger Woods at golf tournament


Daily Mail - 6 hours ago
By Mail Foreign Service A drunken American who heckled Tiger Woods at a major golf tournament was Tasered by police when he refused to stop. ...


Travis Parmelee yelled abuse at the shamed golfer at the second round of the Players Championship, close to the 11th hole in Sawgrass, Florida.

The 36-year-old resisted attempts to calm down and became increasingly belligerent – which led to officers zapping him with a 50,000 volt stun gun.

Just saw him being carted off the course in a wheelchair. I call BS. Chance of him quitting had he been close to the lead? Zero. He’s suffering the “injury” of embarrassment. ....getting his posterior kicked two weeks in a row now.

He bogeyed the final two holes yesterday, then had two more bogeys through the first six today to fall 12 shots behind the leader Westwood.

I’m pulling for Mickelson to have another great round like yesterday. He’s five shots back, so it will take something special for him to win it.

I agree. His little interview after The Masters was the final straw for me, it’s all about him and the heck with everyone else. He’s got a lot of growing up to do and probably not enough years left to do it.

As I reading through these remarks from those of you who were like vicious dogs...

I hope if something in your lives is hard to live down that people around you act better towards you and support you to you are able to grow towards good.

Tiger did unthinkable things yet the Creator will forgive those who are humble and try to do better.

Why are some of you poster like common wolves..

It would be nice if we wanted to save this Republic to be better beings and pray for your fellow man heals and get better not to turn on one like a pack of raving dogs!

Does not this Republic deserves a better class of citizens that is worthy of our Creator Gift America!

I think he means by having a pain in the neck, his wife who is probably getting ready to take him to the cleaners. He is notorious for having short arms and deep pockets so if he is facing any dent in his assets, he is definitely upset.

Its simple, his muscular system is to big for his skeletal system. Same types of problems Bo Jackson had. First it was his knee, then his leg & now his neck. There are some not so nice PED side effects.
