Ok, so this is pretty big news...
It's interesting to note that this will be Wood's third surgery on his left leg. And, although he says doctors say that the outlook is "positive" you have to wonder. Ask Bobby Orr if the knee joint cares that you are a superhuman athlete.
Of course, it is golf--80-year-old men play the game (often better than me). But, the Rotarian Brigade doesn't drive the ball 300+ yards. It's unlikely a knee surgery or two impacts your swing on the back nine of the Flemington Park Golf Course on senior's Wednesday.
What's crazy is that Woods has only played seven events this year. I guess when you consider he's won five of them there isn't much need to play much more. Still, does anyone else get the feeling that Woods might just unexpectedly pack it in one day? It's almost like he's a little bored by golf.
