Hip not back pain plagues Tiger Woods

31st Aug 2015

Tiger Woods admitted that he was hurting at the back nine of the Wyndham Championship. However, instead of back pain, he was suffering from hip pain.

“It’s not my back, no,” said Woods, who had back surgery last year. “Just my hip.”

Woods closed strong with four birdies in his last six holes for a T-10 finish and an even par-70. This was his first top-10 performance all season.

Unfortunately Woods’ hip did not get better as the round went on. A win at the Wyndham would have guaranteed Woods a pass into the first two playoff events at Barclays and the Deutsche Bank Championship.
