Tiger done for rest of season: ACL surgery and stress fractures
Anyone who was at the U.S. Open and paying attention knew something was not right with Tiger’s knee. Now it’s official: He’s done for the season.
According to Tiger’s own website, he needs surgery on a blown ACL and time to heal two stress fractures in his tibia.
I guess when he said that the pain he was experiencing during th Open was different, he wasn’t kidding. He knew it was serious and played on anyway, for the fans, the USGA, and even Rocco Mediate (who wouldn’t have wanted to win on a Tiger WD).
Let’s hope that his career is not threatened by ignoring doctor’s advice and playing at Torrey Pines.
And let’s hope that armchair doctors like our own Tim McDonald never decide to practice medicine for real.
