Tiger Woods Pulls Out with Bulging ...

by at . Comments

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.

After taking several months off for sex addiction rehab following the revelations of his serial cheating on Elin Woods, Tiger's return began promisingly enough.

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.

Call it the Curse of Joslyn James.

Woods did not indicate how long the back problem may sideline him.

Naturally, given the events of the past several months, when you here "Tiger Woods," "pulling out" and "bulging" in any context, one's mind ends up in the gutter.

Perhaps it was little surprise, then, that even The Golf Channel turned into the Spice Channel Sunday when a reporter made an X-rated faux pas about the injury.

Reporter Win McMurry got Woods' sore neck confused with the part of his anatomy more closely associated with bulging ... and his now-infamous marital woes.

Hey, the words are only one letter apart ...

IN MY OPINION, TIGER WOODS HAS HURT HIS GOLFING CAREER ALMOST BEYOND REPAIR. THIS "BULGING" WHATEVER IT IS, IS NO MORE THAN AN EXCUSE FOR HIS POOR GOLF GAME PLAYING. I THINK HE HAS DONE A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF DESTROYING HIS CAREER AS WELL AS HIS MARRIAGE. I FEEL REALLY SORRY FOR ELIN AND THE CHILDREN. HE IS "NOT" A LOVING, RESPONSIBLE PARENT. IF HE WAS HE WOULD NOT HAVE LIVED HIS LIFE IN SUCH A SELFISH, UNETHICAL WAY. I HOPE ELIN WILL FIND HAPPINESS AND A MATE WHO WILL REALLY LOVE HER AND TREAT HER NOT ONLY WITH LOVE, BUT RESPECT AND HONOR.

The funny thing is I actually thought the same thing when I heard about the bulging disk. Clearly Golf Channel anchors are as immature and depraved as the rest of the general public.
