Twitchy reported Sunday afternoon that Tiger Woods had withdrawn from the WGC with a noticeable limp. Later, Woods reported that his injury was, in fact, to the same Achilles tendon he injured last year. That caused some to doubt whether he would be able to compete in the Masters tournament early next month.
Not to worry, though, thanks to a tweet tonight from his official Twitter account. He said his injury was minor and he was “hopeful” to compete next week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
Golf fans all over Twitter rejoiced at the news and sent many an encouraging tweet.
Even this guy was happy, though it’s possible he was rooting for someone a bit more bouncy and flouncy than Woods.
It wasn’t all praise and back-patting, though. Twitter being what it is and Tiger being who he is, there were a few less than appreciative Tweets.
It’s good to know that Tiger won’t be out for any length of time. Golf is a lot more fun when Tiger’s in the pack.
