Golfing legendhad to withdraw from the Cadillac Championship due to some trouble with his left leg
Tiger Woods has been having some trouble or the other in his golfing career and the recent one stems from his health issues. Tiger Woods was recently forced to withdraw from the Cadillac Championship due to some trouble which he had in his left leg. According to details, Tiger Woods had completed his 11 holes, and was on to his 12th one, when he withdrew from the tournament and drove home. The final round of the Cadillac Championship was taking place at Doral, and a number of people had noticed the limp in Wood's step. Woods changed his shoes several times during this tournament, and his limp became very obvious during the 10th and 11th holes.
After the 11th hole, Tiger Woods was taken by cart to his black Mercedes, in which he sat and drove away. He stopped only for a PGA tour media official, who asked him what had happened. According to the official, Woods said: "Leg injury." When asked which leg, Woods responded that it was his left before driving away.
Tiger Woods has already had four surgeries on his left knee and his leg has been giving problems to him even in the past. After the withdrawal, Woods issued a statement in which he mentioned that the problem was with his left Achilles, which is the same one that got him grounded even last summer as well. "I felt tightness in my left Achilles warming up this morning, and it continued to get progressively worse," he said. "After hitting my tee shot at 12, I decided it was necessary to withdraw. In the past, I may have tried to continue to play, but this time, I decided to do what I thought was necessary. I will get my Achilles evaluated sometime early next week."
Even last May, Tiger Woods was forced to withdraw after nine holes from The Players in Ponte Vedra Beach. After that, he had to miss three months of the season in order to allow the same leg to heal. He then had reconstructive surgery on the knee after winning the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines, and then did not return to the sport for the next nine months in order to recuperate completely.
We wish Tiger Woods a speedy recovery and hope that he will be able to play at the upcoming Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando in two week's time.
