After showing flashes of the old Tiger Woods over the past couple of months, Tiger Woods was shooting 3 over par at Doral Sunday and suddenly left the game. His only comment was "left leg".
Now everyone is wondering if it was the left leg giving him trouble once again or was it a good reason to leave a game in which he had no chance of winning?
This is not to say Tiger's left leg wasn't hurting him. He's had three or four operations on it already. But the old competitiveness seems to be missing, even though he has been playing much better of late.
Perhaps it's the same as the Peyton Manning case. We just don't know.
The fact is that it's been two years since Tiger won a regular PGA tournament, none since the car accident a couple of years ago.
Some are still wondering if a lot of this is psychological. That happens in sports more often than people realize.
Suddenly a star second baseman in baseball can't make a simple throw to first base. A pitcher suddenly cannot throw a strike.
Still others say that it is Tiger's third leg that has caused all his trouble.
"You go from being at the top of your game and then you turn to topping women while on tour and then get caught. Suddenly you lose your wife, kids, home and then your health, stated a close friend. "Instead of being in the headlines of sports pages, you're on the cover of tabloids and a regular joke on the late night shows."
"Heck, he even lost his caddy!"
