After his tee shot on the ninth hole.

There's mounting evidence that Tiger Woods is a moron.

"Tiger Woods is injured" is becoming as common a headline as "Problems in the Middle East"

He looked in pretty bad shape changing his shoes in the parking lot. Wow.

He seemed to walk up the fairway after that shot from by the bunker just fine, on TV anyway.

I thought when he was standing there that he should be careful. It looked a lot like how he had injured his knee/ankle in the past. Turns out I may have been close… :(

He should take the rest of the year off, then quit. then figure out how to play golf again. It may not be with Sean Foley, but I don't necessarily think Foley's at all to blame.

Edit: Tiger says it's a different kind of back pain. It's in a different spot.

He definitely did not look good on the holes he played in round 4.  He had 65 yds left for his second on the 211-yd par 3. Made par, but one of the worst tee shots I've seen from a pro in awhile. Fatter than fat.

I know injuries are common in golf....everyone gets them.........but this just seems a bit excessive. I've never seen anyone get hurt this much. I feel like over the last 7 years every 4th or 5th tournament there's a new issue....sometimes he plays through them and other times he can't. It's bizarre.

Guy doesn't know when is the right time to stop due to injury. On the bright side, TW, that's the RC captain, will have an easier time making his picks.

Yup. I really hope this isn't a serious and career threatening injury.

If he came back from yet another injury too soon, then yes.

I hear a giant sucking sound in the PGA prediction thread. How many picked Woods?

Mike Weir, Anthony Kim, David Duval, Paul Casey ... off the top of my head. Plenty of injured golfers, few of whom swing as fast as Tiger, none of whom are under ever a fraction of as much scrutiny.

I was really enjoying watching a tour pro hit crap shots (I kept saying "I got that shot")...feel kinda bad now that I now know he was hurt.

It may be, it may not be. But even if it is, in itself, trivial, he is becoming injury-prone. Every time he's injured he has less chance of returning to anything close to his best.

Louie O gets injured about every time he sneezes.

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
