Tiger Woods hurt knee, Achilles’ during Masters

Remember when TV cameras caught Tiger Woods grimacing after he hit his second shot on the 17th hole of the Masters earlier this month?

That’s because Woods’s website said he suffered a “Grade 1 mild medial collateral ligament sprain to his left knee and a mild strain to his left Achilles tendon” as he swung the club. He has pulled out of the Wells Fargo Championship because of the injury.

Woods, who said, “I must follow doctors’orders to get better,” is treating the injury with rest and cold-water therapy. His website says that “soft tissue treatment will also occur later this week.”

Minor injury keeps me from playing Wells Fargo next week. Apologies to tourney & fans, but working hard to get healthy than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply
