Golf Australia Express : Issue 27
PLAYER THE It’s not the first time the other Lefty has caused him such grief. A statement from the Tiger camp was released soon after saying it was a troublesome Achilles that forced his withdrawal from the event. “I felt tightness in my left Achilles warming up this morning, and it continued to get progressively worse,” the statement said. “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.” It showed the golf world Tiger’s mindset on course has also changed. Some would argue it’s a maturity thing—knowing when to give up so you can fight another day is smart. And we know Woods has his sights set on just one goal— Nicklaus’ major record— so it stands to reason he’s being cautious with his body in the lead-up to the The Masters in April. It remains his best major chance. But Tiger doesn’t give up easily. Never has. And despite the man himself tweeting yesterday that he, “Got good news from doc tonight. Only mild strain of left Achilles. Can resume hitting balls late in week and hopeful for next week.”, some fear his latest injury concern could actually be more serious than he’s been letting on. “ Got good news from doc tonight. Only mild strain of left Achilles.”
