Tiger WDs At Players Championship; What's Next?

   Tiger Woods' withdrawal today after shooting 42 on his first nine holes at The Players Championship is one more chapter in the story that keeps swirling.

    It's apparent that Tiger's knee/Achilles issue hasn't healed which raises the long-term question about what's next for him. The U.S. Open is five weeks away. That's the target. Whether he gets there, it's too soon to know.

   The PGA Tour suits have to be cringing. This is the second straight year Tiger has pulled out at Ponte Vedra and, before lunchtime on Thursday, the tournament is without Woods, Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy.

  It's too early to know much about Tiger's situation and he's not one to share everything anyway. My guess is he went to The Players with some question about whether he was physically ready and he got the answer in a hurry. At 35, what used to heal quickly takes more time.

 Who knows what's next.

That's a BAD guess Ron....his game is not what it was. I highly doubt you will EVER admit that. Your credibility goes down hill with every story about Tiger.....
