It was belatedly revealed that the reason Tiger Woods (USA) withdrew during the US Professional Golf (PGA) Championship last May was due to an emergency due to a protruding screw in his body.
Jason Day (Australia) met with reporters prior to the final round of the 87th Masters Tournament (total prize money of $19 million) held at Augusta National Golf Club (par 72, 7,545 yards) in Augusta, Georgia, USA on the 10th (Korean time) and said, “Last year “I had a conversation with Woods during the PGA Championship,” he said. 메이저놀이터
At that time, Woods withdrew after finishing the third round with a 79. It was his first major stopover. The reason for his withdrawal was known only to the extent of his deteriorating physical condition.
The screw that penetrated Woods’ skin was driven into his body during leg surgery in February 2021. Woods suffered serious injuries, including both legs broken in a car accident at the time, and numerous screws and iron rods were inserted to fix his right foot and ankle bones. After his rehabilitation, he regained some of his swing, but he admitted that it was difficult to walk.
Woods also withdrew from the Masters tournament after finishing 7 holes in the 3rd round due to foot pain. The exact location or extent of the injury was not disclosed. Day said, “Woods was having a hard time,” and “at least it wasn’t a perfect condition to finish the round.”
