Top 10 Tiger Woods Majors Moments

Tiger Woods walks out of the Cadillac Championship because of soreness in his left Achilles tendon. He suffered the same injury last year at the Augusta National, and was forced to miss out on two important subsequent events. This year his injury has relapsed, and it could leave a negative impact on his current form and professional career.

Woods is currently under observation while doctors evaluate the severity of the injury, hoever, for now he will not be playing. He was 3-over par in the final round at Doral, 10 shots out of the lead, when he hit a 321-yard tee shot on the par-5 12th hole, shook hands with Webb Simpson and left in a cart.

Tiger Woods talked about his Achilles tendon injury and said, “I felt tightness in my left Achilles warming up this morning, and it continued to get progressively worse” "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 didn't really notice anything...I wasn't paying much attention, but it looked like he made a swing on 12 that really hurt. But didn't say a whole lot," Web Simpson commented, going on to say that Woods is a 'class act. "He just shook my hand and said, 'I've got to go in.' You could feel he was hurting. He didn't say a whole lot, but his expression was enough that he was in enough pain to end it."

One of the PGA TOUR's top events, the World Golf Championship at Doral makes its home at Miami's Doral Golf Resort and Spa. The Doral Golf Tournament attracts some of the world's finest golfers to the famed Blue Monster Course, one of Doral Golf Resort and Spa's five championship golf courses. Doral was Tiger Woods’ third straight tournament this year. He was inquired about his fitness after the third round to which he said, his body felt great after the stretching exercises.

Tiger was playing amongst other veterans too who were unable to spot any major problem. Steve Stricker who was also playing with Tiger Woods in the third round said, "He always walks with a limp a little bit," Stricker observed. "I noticed it a little bit again. I thought maybe that's something he always has, like a habit."
