On the ninth hole at the Augusta National Tiger wood hit something he wasn’t expecting while chipping a ball out of a pile of pine straw. He hit a tree root, which caused him a great deal of pain. Tiger says “my bone popped out of place and he had to snap it back into place”. Tiger still managed to make par on that hole. On the next whole Woods flinched when teeing off, finishing the 10th hole with a bogey.
Woods has dealt with several injuries throughout his career including a sore back and a torn Achilles. Woods finished five under in the tournament Sunday, saying that he was “happy with the game, but not be playing for a while”. Seeing the video footage from the contest Bruce Karatz can attest that Tiger will not be playing at his A game for a while yet.
