After only a week since Tiger Woods played one of his best final rounds to date in his 16 year PGA tour career, Tiger Woods has suffered an injury.
Tiger Woods has suffered a leg injury and this has raised a lot of questions on whether Tiger Woods will be able to participate in the Masters Tournament which is this year’s first major tournament.
Tiger Woods actually had to withdraw from his current championship and was seen limping away from the final round of the WGC- Cadillac Championship. Tiger Woods had to leave the Blue Monster course which is at the Doral Gold resort and Spa after just 12 holes as he was feeling tightness in his left Achilles tendon.
This is in fact the same Achilles tendon that Tiger Woods injured in last year’s Masters Tournament which set the player back to miss out much of the 2011 season.
Before leaving the gold course Tiger Woods came to the press to issue a statement regarding his injury and it was:
“I felt tightness in my left Achilles warming up this morning, and it continued to get progressively worse.”
“After hitting my tee shot at 12, I decided it was necessary to withdraw. In the past, I may have tried to continue to play, but this time, I decided to do what I thought was necessary.”
“I'll get my Achilles evaluated sometime early next week.”
The point to remember before every Tiger Woods fan starts to throw a fit over this matter is that Tiger Woods was reported to have said that he only felt tightness in his Achilles tendon.
Tiger Woods was also reported to say that the pain was progressively getting worse as he played on and it seems that this was a smart move from Tiger Woods side to withdraw as this could have led to some altercation with long term effects if Tiger Woods had decided to have pushed himself further on a leg that already has an injury history.
Still only time will tell the real picture of the whole Achilles issue but the fact remains that it was a great disappointment in the golfing world to watch Tiger Woods limp away from a gold Couse.
It does not matter if you are a Tiger Woods fan or not, you cannot deny what Tiger Woods bring to the game and it is hoped that the player would get treated soon and will be back in play for the next major tournament.
