Tiger Shuts Down Remainder of PGA Tour

Tiger Woods announced that he is going to have surgery on the left knee that gave him so many problems during his successful run for his fourteenth major golf championship. Apparently, he ruptured his ACL in 2007 while running at his home in Orlando after the British Open. He decided not to have surgery at that point, and he went on to win five of the next six events he entered (through his Target World Challenge in December).

In addition to the ruptured ACL, he also has a stress fracture on his tibia!

So, he will not be competing in any tournaments for the remainder of 2008, missing the British Open and PGA Championships for the first time of his illustrious career. Tiger Woods is the engine that drives the PGA Tour, without his presence, the Tour is little more than an amateur contest.

plez sez: i had no idea his knee was that messed up... a ruptured ACL and a double stress fracture in the tibia!!!

the Legend of Tiger Woods continues to grow... he was runner up at the Masters and played a 19 hole playoff to win the US Open! this guy is without peer in his sport... and the next guy on the list is a DISTANT Number Two. without Tiger Woods, the PGA Tour is a joke... is phil mickelson, sergio garcia, ernie els, and a cast of 150 golfers provide even half of the excitement of ONE Tiger Woods?!? will sponsors be lining up for the remaining majors? will television viewers be rearranging their schedule to watch even one round of Tiger-less golf this summer?

Tiger's left knee has shut down the PGA Tour for the remainder of 2008!
