Come on, he was faking the injury during the tournament and probably faking this surgery too. Coward. ;-7

Tiger hurts his leg walking. Wang hurts his foot jogging. What the heck is this world coming to? Where are the days of manly men and rub some dirt in it, Nancy. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Unbelievable. This just makes his win even more greater. I can't believe people were questioning whether he was faking it. :-t

Hopefully he recovers well and comes back strong in 09.

Tiger Woods To Undergo Reconstructive Knee Surgery and Miss Remainder of 2008 Season

Doctors assure Woods that long-term prognosis is very good with rehabilitation and training

Just days after winning the 2008 U.S. Open in a dramatic sudden-death playoff, Tiger Woods announced that he will be forced to undergo reconstructive Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) surgery on his left knee and will miss the remainder of the PGA TOUR season.

In addition to the knee surgery, Woods will require the time off to rehabilitate a double stress fracture of his left tibia that was discovered last month just prior to the Memorial Tournament. The stress fractures were attributed to Woods' intense rehabilitation and preparations for the U.S. Open. Doctors have assured Woods that the stress fractures will heal with time.


Full Story

It looks like it's not going to threaten his career, but this sucks all the same.
