Woods withdraws for injury, again. Quote | Reply

So, after starting to look a bit like old Tiger again, Woods had to withdraw again today from a tournament, citing Achilles pain. If this guy can't get his body to hold up, he's never going to come back to what he was, if that's even possible.

Time to join Kobe on the G4 to Germany for "special treatments".

Its sad that what once seemed to be a foregone conclusion (breaking Jack's record) is now very, very much in doubt. I think a huge part of what made Tiger so dominating was the aura of invincibility.....that is now very much gone. Not just from the youngsters, but even Phil isn't afraid of him anymore. I don't think that will ever come back.....

The other, of course, involves orcs.” John Rogers

Golf is a son-of-a-bitch.

He needs to get his mind right.

"Achilles and a golf swing??? Really? "

There's a lot of torque on your left ankle (if you're a rightie) when you swing. I'm not sure which leg he's having problems with, but part of his injuries last year where knees and achilles, so I guess he's probably experiencing some residual issues from that. That said, I tore my achilles 6 or 7 years ago, and after it was repaired and I came back from it through PT, it's just as strong or stronger than my other leg. I tore my left achilles and haven't ever experienced anything that felt like I was close to injuring it again.

He'll win again - but I doubt he will ever be a force again. He isn't getting older and the overuse injuries are piling up. 4 surgeries on the one knee already.

The story keeps getting sadder and sadder. If Shakespeare was alive the decline of Tiger would be his next story.
