Tiger Grinds Out 2-Under 69 Despite Bad Back, Trails Leaders Watney and Garcia by 3

by Kenny Ducey

"I'm probably going to sleep on the floor. I do that in Europe all the time, so this is nothing new."

This was not a joke from Tiger Woods, as one reporter had thought. These were the realities the aging superstar had to face after suffering through hours of pain in his lower back. He described it as pain in "a section of movement" that would come right before impact in his swing. Through all this, you'd think the 36 year-old might consider withdrawing - something he says never crossed his mind. Instead, the two-time FedEx Cup winner posted a 2-under 69 to put him three shots back of leader Nick Watney.
