Tiger just withdrew from API citing a neck strain he’s had for a few week. Hopes to be back for Players. He says his back is fine and isn’t concerned about the long term. Yikes.



So if he’s had it for a few weeks, why would he add Mexico? Has he actually had it for a few weeks? I was looking forward to walking a laid back Bay Hill while the frenzy followed Tiger.

    I think this gels with how he's played the last couple events. I noticed that his ball speed was pretty low at Riviera (low 170s at best with the driver). And then in Mexico, he was hitting irons off almost every tee and not attacking with the driver like everyone else. Probably wasn't feeling comfortable too go hard.

    Maybe he'll let us nominate a new player for him to cheer for this week.

    lots of pressure to get top players to play in the Mexico deal, that zillionaire payed Moneyham tons of moolado to get this on the sched.

    He WD'd at the request of the USGA. They are tired of being the lead story.

    It's hard not to worry that there's more to this than he's saying based off of everything like this in the past. Hopefully it's as minor as he implies and he's good to go for the Players.

    Saw the topic and thought it was clickbait. Unfortunate. Glad he's not trying to tough it out like he did in the past.

    Any kind of physical complaint from him that involves the spine is not good.
  • mankumanku Members Posts: 674 ✭✭
    Well, we know there are only a couple ways you get a neck sprain, and he's already done the first!



  • Dang, he plays great at Bay Hill. I was really looking forward to watching him make a Sunday run, and then having all those young guns sweat it out a little bit.

    Any bets on whether this "pain in the neck" will linger all season long?

    May depend on what the 'bigger name' is in the Bob Kraft investigation....

    Neck Strain. It would seem to imply a muscle injury vs his spine. Hopefully.



    Sounds odd.
