My Bulging Disc
Tiger Woods withdrew from the Players Championship with what he says may be a "bulging disc" in his neck. I'm not sure where you stand on this, but I'm not comfortable discussing any parts of Tiger Woods' anatomy that has the word "bulging" in it. Win McMurry, a Golf Channel reporter, said that "Woods has been playing with a bad neck for about a month and thinks it could be a bulging dick." Holy faux pas Batman. Murry wasn't alone. Paul Azinger sent out this tweet: "Could this (the neck injury) have been prevented with a good Swedish massage?" Woods's wife, Elin, is Swedish. The sudden end came on the seventh hole while Woods was 2-over par through his first six holes, with no shot at contending. Maybe the injury was a convenient explanation for Tiger's poor performance during the tournament. Prior to the event, Woods was asked if he had an physical issues. He respended "No, zero. Absolutely 100 percent." Is this another case of Woods not being truthful? Could he have toughed it out? Or, is his body actually breaking down? With Tiger you never know the real story. The Players Champioship was one by a diminutive South African, Tim Clark. In nine full seasons on the PGA Tour he was 0-for-205. Sadly, the 2010 Players Championship will be remembered for who didn't finish the tournament, instead of for the man who won it.
