Still trying to find out why...

Reported on PGATour.com injury.

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from THE PLAYERS Championship while playing the front nine of his final round with a neck injury.

Woods, who won THE PLAYERS Championship in 2001, was 2 over through six holes when he pulled out.

After hitting his tee shot on No. 7 far right, 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.

He then went to the TOUR’s fitness trailer for further examination and treatment.

Woods has been battling a neck injury all week and tweaked it while warming up prior to starting Sunday’s round. — Brian Wacker (Associated Press also contributed to this report)

He claims that he has been hurt since before the Masters...

I actually gave him credit on wednesday for being "real" in his interview. He was being what looked liked to be himself, having fun with the media, answering all the questions he was asked.... and then he pulls this BS, along with the excuse all week that he has not played many tournaments...

Alex Meceli made a great comment. Haney has been taking tons of abuse and Tiger could have ended that by disclosing this injury earlier rather than leaving HH under the bus.

Update:

Apparently he was all over the course at the start of his 4th round.. hitting the ball in the water, in pine straw, in tree's, 269yrd drives... on 7 he instructed Stevie to pick up his ball and walked off the course after not being able to get up and down from a 109 shot out of the rough...

Comparing the Tiger withdrawal with Wie's is completely false.

Wie (allegedly) withdrew because of the LPGA's 88 rules which stipulates that any non-LPGA player who doesn't break 88 in a round is not allowed to finish the tournament or play in any other tournaments for the rest of the season.

Tiger? He can damn well play whenever and wherever he wants. Anyone with > 20 PGA Tour wins have life time exemption.

The analogy is to compare the two making up excuses to leave the course when they aren't playing well. Whats false about that? Care to explain, or to even read my full post?

Guys Tiger was only 2 over. It's not like he was 6 over through 6. As was said he was hitting all over the map and appeared to have little strength/power to get balls to go anywhere. Little different then Michelle.

Great point. It's embarrassing/sickening how ridiculous some of the Tiger haters can be when attempting to trash him and getting their facts wrong.

Some other genius asked, 'Why is this guy always injured?'. How can anyone be so obtuse? The guy has been playing for 13 years and has been essentially injury free for 11 of them. Or more accurately, he played with varying degrees of injury for the past 3 years without saying a word to anyone and won the US Open on a fractured leg.

Drinking the Tiger-hater KoolAid causes logic to go out the window, I guess.

Why he just wrote what everyone is thinking. He just has the balls to write it instead of just being nice because you might get an interview down the road. Tiger needs to go away and practice and come back when he is shooting appropriate scores and stop embarrassing himself to get his sponsors back. Tiger team this isn't working.......:hyper:

Yes, that 4th at the Masters was particularly embarrassing.

Hong Kong opens in a couple of hours : ) We'll likely never know what happened. Fat finger might have started it but bots took over from there. I've been watching intraday for 10 years and never saw anything like it. TSE and American exchanges will bust some of the trades ('clearly erroneous execution' rule) but plenty of guys whose resting stops were configured to turn into market orders lost their positions.

Who are you...his doctor? How do you know what is truth when it comes to anyones injury?
I'll understand based on your comments, that you're kidding, silly or you're desperate to see an "injured" player play regardless of how it may potentially or not affect his play or worse, his future. Do you actually "Love" that he "choked"? Why? Does it really affect your life if any player pulls out of a tourney?

And ps, I'll bet Tiger thanks you for giving him credit for being real.

It's quite simple. He reached adulthood as a scrawny guy with a slim frame, and then put bulk on that frame. People who do that find that their bodies break down earlier than other athletes. I brought this up a couple of years ago (before the knee injury) and people said, "nah, Tiger knows how to take care of himself."

Well, frankly, it's happening a lot sooner than I expected -- I thought he'd hit 38 or 39 before the injuries started piling up, but I can't say I'm surprised that it's happening.

I think he'll bounce back and win five or six more majors, but I don't see him dominating four years from now, and I would expect him to retire by his mid-40s.

What in the hell are you talking about? I merely posted my opinion that first came to mind. For the first time ever I seen the guy literally give up during a round at Quail Hollow and miss the cut, now he walks off the course citing an injured neck. My post wasnt even trashing they guy, just stating what many others were thinking as well. Hungrey Gut didnt bother to read my post as I said that Tigre wasnt on his way to the 80 plus round of MW and made another stupid comment without reading the entire thing. For the record, I don't root for, or against, Tiger. I could care less, but if you talk about 'drinking the koolaid', perhaps you and your buddy may want to ring up Tiger, sit on 'Privacy' with a couple jugs of it yourself and sing koombya. :rolleyes:

What a load of crap that TW is truly injured!!

Just an excuse because he knew he had no chance to win the tournament and his game is in the stinker right now.

There is no way he would be able to play at all if he had this "so called bulging discs" as anyone who has ever had it will say it is excruciating.

Normally I would believe him but his comment during the masters interviews last year that he threw out he had torn his achilles tendon last year and never let it be known and said he played with the injury just cemented in my mind the guy is full of bs.........Anyone with a torn achilles can barely walk let alone play golf..........I don't know who is handling him but the guy needs a medical doctor for advice on what to say and what not to say......The guy is completely full of bs and his ego is even more full.

Although he probably is one of the greatest golfers of all time it is really astonishing how truly fast and hard he is falling........If he is able to come back from all this it will be remarkable but I severely doubt it as his character is completely tarnished and no one is afraid of him now on the golf course.

How quickly we forget he won a US Open on a broken leg and destroyed knee. Having a tingely feeling in your arm is not something to mess with. What was his excuses for other poor performances in the past??? He plays through everything.

It's quiet ammusing watching Live From The Players last night. Alex Miceli was getting mad because Tiger didn't tell anyone about this. He said it was the media's right know....since when. Your job is to dig this stuff up. There were a couple smart media people that noticed him Thursday and Friday rubbing his neck stretching it, and so on. Where were all the smart Golf Channel staff to pick this up??? There was a camera man or women that had enough shots of it.

The guy withdrew because of a neck injury. Lets move on. It was a pretty exciting finish and solid tournament.

Two things:

1) Jason Bohn said Tiger was in obvious pain when they shook hands when Tiger decided to withdraw. Do you think Jason is part of the Tiger conspiracy?

2) A funny comment from the Globe and Mail:

"I once had a viagra get stuck in my throat, had a stiff neck for a week."

I don't get why there are people who think he's faking an injury. I find it hard to believe that Tiger would come back and finish fourth in the Masters, but that his game would suddenly go so far south that he would miss a cut in one event and then hovering around 50th in the next. For that to happen, you've got to think there's something physically wrong.

It's amazing how much nagging injuries hurt so much more when you're playing badly. ( I think we've all been there )

the word going around here is that Finchem is more than a little pissed that this injury revelation comes out of the blue like that.

Apparently he took it as a slap in the face both to The Tour and personally.

... And before anybody asks if Tiger has to inform The Tour about any injuries, he does, on both a moral and contractual basis.

I would agree with you if he didn't have an interview the day before saying he was 100%. It could have happened then I guess but then he said he had a sore neck since the Masters so again he is lieing in some regard. Either yesterday because he didn't want to finish the round and post another terrible score or the day before when he was 100 %. Either way it would be easy to fake an injury of sore neck wince a bit and hold your neck and then your not held accountable for your WD or if you were pissed and didn't want to finish. As per the Michele Wie worked for her. She didn't loose her card and Tiger can still hold onto #1 and be a Mr. good guy. Except even the golf channel is starting to doubt him now. Possibly he is so stressed his neck does hurt and he needs a good massage. I really just though he would take off the shades and greet the people and cordially wave as leaving not stare straight ahead and ignore everyone who came out to support you again.

You've got some good logical thinking there. Unfortunately "Tiger Haters" find it more interesting to fabricate their own scenarios. I, also, don't really root for or against him. I find it amusing though, that the "Tiger Haters", are the ones that most love to talk about him.

Here is some quotes from players about Tigers neck injury from the Golf Channel...

Love knows Tiger's pain (http://www.torontogolfnuts.com/core.aspx?page=15158&select=36666&select2=228)

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Davis Love III said there can more than physical stress for Tiger Woods’ in playing with a bad neck.
“When you’re not playing well, it wrecks your confidence,” Love said after posting a 4-under-par 68 Sunday at The Players Championship, making him the first player of the day to post a round in the 60s.
Woods withdrew at the seventh hole complaining of pain in his neck. Love has played with neck problems the last few years.
“It’s funny that he and I were talking about my neck injury earlier in the week and that I needed to work out more,” Love said. “We were talking about working out some together, and he pulls out for the same thing that bothers me.
“I know how he feels. It’s a scary feeling when your fingers are tingling and you’re hitting shots and getting headaches. It’s a weird feeling. You don’t know what to do.”

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Bob Estes became curious when he walked into the PGA Tour’s fitness van early Sunday and saw Tiger Woods getting worked on by one of the circuit’s trainers.
“I asked him, ‘You alright big guy?’ And he said, ‘I am now,’” Estes said.
The signs were on the wall, however. Estes said Woods was in the van receiving treatment when he arrived and was still getting worked on when he left.
