Tiger Has Season Ending Surgery

Thursday, June 19, 2008

So after Tiger endures sudden death to win the U.S. Open (which according to an NPR report was the most watched golf tournament on cable) apparently Tiger is out for the rest of the season because he's going under the knife to help rehabilitate his knee:

Woods said he tore the ACL while jogging at home after the British Open last July. He chose not to have surgery and went on a run that included seven consecutive victories, including the Dubai Desert Classic in Europe and his Target World Challenge, an unofficial event.

He did not play overseas late last year for the first time since 2003, hopeful that rest could allow him to play more this year. But the pain intensified through the Masters, where he finished second, and Woods said the cartilage damage developed from the ACL injury.
Talk about being Asian tough.
