Just quoting these two because they say what I'd say to phan as well, but more succinctly and thus better than I'd have said it.
The guy can't win no matter what the hell he does. Tiger didn't make an excuse. He was honest with what he was feeling at the moment. We want honesty from Tiger right? He is always sooo guarded right? So he gives an honest response and BOOM, everyone pounces because they are experts and have all the answers. Disgusting.
BTW, I once sprained a muscle in my neck turning around while backing out of my garage. My neck seized, I had tremendous pain, and my muscle twitched (my daughter was scared and started freaking out because it looked like "an animal was inside your neck trying to get out."
It was stiff and sore for a week. Sleeping was tough, and I had to resist EVERY urge I ever had to turn my neck at even a normal slow speed - I had to turn my whole body to look anywhere, especially to the right. If I moved too quickly or a bit too much, BAM - Animal Trying to Escape Mode was engaged.
Jim Furyk WDed from a playoff event a few years ago because he sprained his neck brushing his teeth, IIRC.
Uh huh. You can't offer anything close to a valid opinion on someone else's medical conditions, pain levels or threshold, etc.
