  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Tiger Woods faces new difficulty

Tiger Woods has been in and out of the sports news world for quite some time. Everyone probably remembers when he was on top of the world, especially in the PGA tour.

Not surprisingly, he is back in the sports world news again. This time, according to Reuters, he may not be participating in the PGA Championship that is due to start on Thursday in Kentucky due to back injury.

He recently had back surgery earlier in the year, and had not been in play for three months before playing in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. According to the article, he was working through spasms and left in discomfort.

If Woods continues going through the back pains that he has been fighting, then he more than likely will not be in the PGA Championship. Or, the other case scenario is that he goes through and starts out in it and then has to withdraw.

Woods needs to relax and heal his back if he wants to have a successful career still in professional golf. As of right now, if he does not play in the PGA, he more than likely will not be selected to play in the United States Ryder Cup that will be held in September.

He has 14 titles since 2008, and has only played six times this season. He has had to withdraw at least twice and has a slew of injuries. If he can heal up, especially his back, then he can still play. As of the most recent round, he placed 69th in the British Open and came in 75th overall.

If he does not heal up, then it might be time for him to consider retiring from the sport and or coaching a team. Injuries take athletes out at all the time, and most recover from them to come back. Some do not, especially if old injuries get aggravated and cause more problems that surgery might not be able to fix, if the athlete has not gone into physical therapy to fix it, or if the therapy did not work. In Woods’s case, he needs to take care of his back if he still wants to be a part of the competition.
