WATCH: Tiger Woods seen hitting balls the day after his controversial withdrawal

Tiger Woods’ withdrawal from the Safeway Open has been met with a backlash.

Tiger’s withdrawal was a tough pill to swallow, not least for the organisers of this week’s Safeway Open. Normally, we would be given the “my body’s not ready” line, a message willingly reiterated by agent Mark Steinberg. It was different this time. Tiger couldn’t hide behind another injury excuse so he simply said: “I’m not ready.”

Many of Tiger’s fans – who have stood by him through thick and thin – were understandably pissed off. Commit on Friday, withdraw on Monday, a very effective way to piss off your loyal followers – many of which bought a ticket to the Safeway Open.

People began to speculate on social media; yips, chunks and steroids, you name it and someone said it.
