Um, No. Wow Doesn't Cover It.
Woods had triumphed despite playing 72 holes in regulation and 19 more in the playoff with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and a double stress fracture of his left tibia, the large bone in the lower leg.
The world's No. 1 golfer revealed he has been playing with a torn ACL since last July and said he will sit out the rest of the 2008 PGA Tour season after undergoing reconstructive surgery on his knee.
Seriously? He beat every other golfer in the world with an injury that would debilitate most human beings, leaving them in a crumpled heap?
Suck it, Ernie Els. Eat crap, Lefty.
Can any other golfer ever feel like they have a chance when Tiger is healthy again?
And is there a more impressive physical feat in sports in recent memory? Willis Reed, Michael Jordan with the flu, sure...but a torn ACL and broken leg? Good gravy.
