Neck pain "not related" to wreck
Plus, golf ball flying 200 yards not related to hitting it
Tiger Woods says the neck injury that caused
him to withdraw from The Players Championship
is in no way related to his Thanksgiving night
accident. This report from The Associated Press:
Tiger Woods says there is "zero connection" between
the neck pain that forced him to withdraw
from The Players Championship and his Nov. 27
Woods said during a news conference Monday that
his neck started bothering him two weeks before
the Masters, his first competition in five months.
He brushed it off as "no big deal" until it kept getting worse.
"I'm at a point now where I just can't go anymore,"
Woods said he's been taking anti-inflammatory
drugs, but they have not helped.
He plans to have an MRI when he returns to Orlando,
He said his schedule is "up in the air" and could
be shaped based on what he sees in the MRI.
Woods insisted he can deal with the pain, which
he feels in the right side of his neck,
but cannot deal with the spasms that affect his
ability to turn his head.
"For me not to play all 18 holes, that was as
angry and as frustrated as I've been in a long time,"
Woods said of withdrawing from The Players Championship
on Sunday. "It is sore."
In November, Woods was briefly hospitalized after
he crashed his Cadillac Escalade
into a fire hydrant and a tree outside his home,
resulting in a sore neck and a cut lip.
Maybe he's telling the truth.
Maybe his neck pain is due to Elin smacking him
with a nine iron.
