The Real Reason Tiger Woods Bombed His Final Round At Wyndham

Sharon Wong

After a promising first round at the Wyndham Championship, everything’s gone downhill for Tiger Woods again. His woes started on the 11th hole of the final round, when some mysterious pain had him clutching at his back. He struggled to a triple-bogey 7 and then hit a weak shot on the 12th shot, a mistake that led to a bogey and sealed his fate. What a disappointment, after that early 64 score.

When asked if his 2004 back surgery affected his playing, his vague response was, “It’s not my back, no. It’s just my hip.” He never clarified which hip and whether it stayed hurting for the rest of the tournament. Another surgery on the horizon? We hope not.
