Injuries have become a real problem for Tiger Woods over the years. Despite injury risks, Woods said he “thought I would give it a go” at the BMW Championship in August.
Since winning a major at Augusta in May, Tiger Woods hasn’t really seemed like the same player and his movements are noticeably slower than before that triumph. His latest injury problem is an oblique strain which is causing him some discomfort.
It kept him out of the previous event in New Jersey, but Woods said he would see how it goes at the latest tournament, the BMW Championship. The 15-time major winner confirmed he would be receiving treatment and couldn’t practice much before stepping onto the course.
Needing To Keep Up
Tiger Woods has dropped to 38th in the rankings, and if he wants to play in the Tour Championship, he needs to have a good weekend. If Woods can finish in the top ten it’s likely his ranking will be boosted enough to break the top 30 and take him to the prestigious event next week. Last year Woods managed to win the Tour Championship, but as things stand, he’s not even going to enter that tournament this year.
Managing His Body
Tiger has admitted in the past that his determination to succeed has set him back when it comes to injuries. It seems he has learned from the mistakes of the past and no longer pushes his body to its limits.
Like when he pulled out of last week’s event in New Jersey, if things don’t feel right for Tiger, he isn’t going to play. His agent, Mark Steinberg, believes Tiger is being smart about his injuries these days, and he accepts that from time to time he won’t be at his best.
