Tiger Woods Withdraws From PGA Championship

One of my bold sports predictions for 2011 was that Tiger Woods was going to return to golf royalty and have a comeback season to remember. However, after Tiger’s miserable performance on the front 9 of The Players Championship, it looks more and more that I will need a mulligan. Woods shot a 6-over par 42 after the front 9 holes at TPC Sawgrass and withdrew from the tournament, citing knee and Achilles injuries. It was clear the former #1 golfer on the planet was having a lot of trouble walking and appeared to be in a tremendous amount of pain. Today marks just the fourth time in Tiger’s career that he was forced to withdraw from a tournament after starting it. Just a month ago, Tiger played well at Augusta National, and gave some golf fans hope that he might soon be returning to his old self. Now, I wonder if we will ever see the golfer that dominated the PGA Tour, struck fear into his opponents, and made some of the toughest golf courses in the world look like a total joke. Instead, we are watching an athlete’s body completely break down and as a result, Tiger is suddenly a shell of the player he once was.
