During the middle of his round on Sunday, Tiger Woods pulled out of The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., citing a neck injury.
Woods was on his seventh hole when he decided to leave the tournament saying that he may have a "bulging disk." The golfer admitted he first felt the pain before the Masters last month.
"I've been playing with a bad neck for quite a while...They want me to go get a picture (MRI) on it next week. I might have a bulging disk. I've been playing through it. I can't play through it anymore," said Tiger.
With Woods' decision to pull out of the championships he is in danger of losing his No. 1 world ranking, putting Phil Mickelson in the top spot with a win at the TPC Sawgrass.
