A Look Back at Tiger’s Injuries

A new report surfaced in February saying that 14-time major winner Tiger Woods has suffered a setback on his recovery from injury. However, Tiger Woods' agent has dismissed the report. Hall of Famer Jack Nicklaus even gave testimony; the 18-time major winner said Tiger looked "very healthy" at a dinner party at his house.

Injury has become Tiger’s long-term “friend”. Here’s a rundown of some the problems that have plagued Tiger over the years:
