Even the cause of cramps is under review now. It was always thought to be dehydration, but now some may be caused by nerve overstimulation. Back spasms have always been a mystery.

Well, unless it truly is 100% back spasm, I can't see TW coming back to anything near resembling his old self.

I think his career is over.  I've said it before, athletes don't know when they are done.

I wonder if he still gets the seven figure appearance fee just for playing one round? If he did then hes laughing his way to the bank.

He did attend a Q&A at the club (or something) at about 3:30 local time in the afternoon, they kept reporting.

If he's hurt his back again, I doubt he'll be doing much laughing on the flight home.

Not news we need about Tiger, they saying it back problems again, he really only played 3 rounds since his return so not good at all, hoping not career ending thing for him.:hmm:

Especially for the length of time he took off in order to "fully" recover.

He's done.

I'm afraid I agree with you.

back spasms, not the nerve issue he felt before, WD as a precaution

Maybe it's not the nerve issue he felt before, but what else causes a muscle to spasm? A nerve issue. Now he has another one!

Uhm, no. I'm not a doctor (though I do have a degree in medicinal chemistry), but… no, that's not what generally causes spasms. Nerve issues are nerve issues, and present as such. They don't often present as spasms.

Spasms of skeletal muscles are most common and are often due to overuse, dehydration, and electrolyte abnormalities. The spasm occurs abruptly, is painful, and is usually short-lived. It may be relieved by gently stretching the muscle.

Nothing about "nerve issues."

I get spasms now and then...a result of not so great posture, which has stretched out my rhomboid muscle (under the shoulder blades).  I will get a spasm if I am not properly warmed up before some sort of exercise, like a push up.  No nerve damage involved.  Usually takes about three days to clear up.  Best course of action is to ice it as soon as I feel it...that limits the damage, and I can get rid of it faster.  After that, massage and heat are how I treat it.  Can't play good golf when one comes on though.

This is between Garcia and Stenson.

Poulter and Meesawat have an outside chance unless someone shoots a 62......can't see it on this course though.

Good to see Poulter in the mix again.

Hmmmm, that's a new one on me! I was taught that muscles respond, or contract, due to stimuli from nerves.

Dehydration is another question, but does anyone seriously believe that Tiger is out there dehydrated?

And, BTW, is there anything you DON'T do?

Thank God I have only had them one time in my life, and it was at a fairly young age. To this day I have no clue what brought them on, and my life was pure misery for two days. I couldn't stand, sit, or lie down! Then they went away and never returned.

The point is that it's not the same thing as the nerve issue he had before. People without nerve damage can have back spasms. Muscles normally contract due to stimuli from nerves, but a spasm is not a "normal" contraction of a muscle.

And I didn't say he was dehydrated. I just quoted Google.

It probably wasn't a pinched nerve due to a bulging disc. :-)

    • I suck, but I won $30 off my buddies so successful day I guess. I struck the ball really well all day but I had trouble finding fairways (5/14 just 1/7 on the front) this led to a ton of tree trouble that I didn't do a good job of managing. Had 10 GIR but only 2 birdies should have had more I had probably 6 looks under 8' and a few more under 15' but had some yippy strokes and didn't make much of anything all day. I was 0/7! on par saving putts my short game was pretty awful.   
    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
