    Tiger to have season-ending knee surgery

    Tiger Woods is done for the year, but not without one last major that he said might have been his best ever.

    Woods explained why on Wednesday when he revealed he will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee that he injured 10 months ago.

    He also suffered a double stress fracture of his left tibia two weeks before the U.S. Open, ignoring doctors' advice to take six weeks off to let it heal. And he still won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, going 91 holes over five days on a knee that was getting worse.

    Tiger injured, damn if I didn't know better I would think he was human.

    It just makes his performance last weekend even more remarkable, at least the others have a chance of a major now.

    I'd love to see him even come close to Jack Nicklaus's records.
    While watching the US Open, the announcers brought up that in order for Tiger to beat Jack Nicklaus's top 10 record, he'd have to come top 10 in all major tournaments from now untill 2012.

    Yeah but that's only 4 years, Tiger is going to be playing much much longer than that.

    Re: Tiger to have season-ending knee surgery

    actually, now that i think about it, it was top 5, not top 10.
    I know Tiger will be playing for much longer, but can he come top 5 EACH time?
    I would be thoroughly impressed.
    I think he'll break it, but it will be sometime around 2017, not 2012

    [size=12pt]Man Who Used Stick To Roll Ball Into Hole In Ground Praised For His Courage[/size]
    June 19, 2008

    SAN DIEGO—A man who used several different bent sticks to hit a ball to an area comprised of very short grass surrounding a hole in the ground was praised for his courage Monday after he used a somewhat smaller stick to gently roll the ball into the aforementioned hole in fewer attempts than his competitors. "What guts, what confidence," ESPN commentator Scott Van Pelt said of the man, who was evidently unable to carry his sticks himself, employing someone else to hold the sticks and manipulate the flag sticking out of the hole in the ground while he rolled the ball into it. "You have to be so brave, so self-assured, so strong mentally to [roll a ball into a hole in the ground]. Amazing." The man in question apparently hurt his knee during this activity.

    John Daly is still my favorite golfer but Tiger is amazing to watch as well.

    I feel bad as I was trying to convince everyone at work that he was faking..... :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
