Tiger out of Charlotte

Tiger Woods announced today that he’ll miss the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The tournament is scheduled for May 5-8.

Woods injured his left knee hitting that tough shot from the pine straw under the Eisenhower Pine at the Masters a few weeks ago.

“I personally contacted tournament officials and expressed my regret in not being able to play.  This is an outstanding event, but I must follow doctors’ orders to get better.” ~Tiger Woods

The injuries include a grade 1 mild medial collateral ligament sprain in the left knee and a mild strain the left Achilles tendon.  Woods will rest the injuries, undergo cold water therapy and soft tissue treatment.  There is no definite date scheduled for Tiger’s return, quoted to be in “a few weeks.”

    Injuries can happened anytime. All golf players are vulnerable, even how good he is in the game,no one can avoid that reality. Wish him well…

    That’s the same knee that has been repaired three times right? Hopefully its nothing major, it was a blast catching a glimpse of his old form on the front nine at Augusta.
