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 withand 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."
