Tiger Woods Pulls Up Lame Again, Withdraws from the WGC-Cadillac

Tiger Woods has one goal on his mind, winning five more major championships.  The WGC-Cadillac has a $8.5 million purse, the top 50 players in the world, and South Beach, but it is not a major. 

After posting rounds of 72-67-68, Woods felt tightening of his left Achilles while warming up for his final round. He limped through 11 holes but was forced to withdraw after hitting his tee shot on the 12th hole on Sunday.

This was the third consecutive event for Woods, who very rarely plays consecutive weeks. Tiger has said several times over the past months that he needed more reps to fine tune his ailing golf game. The WGC-Accenture Match Play, the Honda Classic and the WGC-Cadillac provided the perfect opportunity to get quality starts heading into the Masters.

Tiger was knocked out of the match play in the second round by Nick Watney 1-up. He again started slowly in the Honda, posting a 71 in the first round, but followed that up with a 68 on Friday, a 69 on Saturday and a stellar 62 on Sunday to finish just two shots behind the winner Rory McIlroy.

The 62 in the final round at the Honda Classic, head-to-head confrontation with the heir apparent Rory McIlroy and Tiger charging up the leader board and making putts are the things that had golf fans everywhere salivating and dreaming of Masters glory.   

Woods is a workout fiend. Look at photos of Tiger when he joined the tour in 1996 and check out his ripped body now. He even has used US Navy Seal training methods to improve his quickness, endurance and strength.

Has this extreme training regimen, years of violent golf swings and walking thousands of golf courses over-taxed his 36-year-old legs?

Hopefully not, and this is just a minor roadblock in his march to over take Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles.
