Tiger Woods withdrew from the prestigious Players Championship Sunday, citing an injury and saying he's "been playing with a bad back for about a month."
The problem is reportedly a bulging disk in his upper back.

He finished fourth at April's Masters, but missed the cut at last week's Quail Hollow Championship, and then pulled out of The Players Championship Sunday.
