    Tiger Woods walked tenderly out of Torrey Pines with a U.S. Open trophy he was destined to win on a left leg worse than anyone imagined. A group of children called out to him and Woods looked over and waved. It turned out to be a most symbolic gesture. So long, Tiger. See you next year.

    Woods revealed Wednesday he has been playing for at least 10 months with a torn ligament in his left knee, and that he suffered a double stress fracture in his left leg two weeks before the U.S. Open. He said he will have season-ending surgery, knocking him out of the final two majors and the Ryder Cup.

    One of the greatest performances of all time in any sport by one of sports greatest athletes ever.

    Yeah, I was wearing a hat when I read that news. As soon as I heard that, I immediately took it off. What a performance. I don't like watching golf, but I like playing it (mostly drunk). I know how hard it would be to tee off with a torn ligament and two fractures in your knee.

    Anticipating the pain that happens after a drive, would certainly ruin most people's concentration... guess all the pundits who said he was faking will have to retract.. never mind.
