Tiger Woods Injury History

Tiger-Woods-Injury-History-PhotoThe Associated Press put together a list of his injuries throughout his playing career. I thought it would be fun to:

1) See if they were right.

2) See if I could find articles on all of them.

It turns out they were right for the most part. I couldn’t find documentation on one of the injuries.

  1. April 2011 – Sprain of medial collateral ligaments in left knee and minor strain of his left achilles.

    “I personally contacted tournament officials and expressed my regret in not being able to play. This is an outstanding event, but I must follow doctors’ orders to get better.

  2. December 2010 – Right ankle necessitates cortisone shot.
  3. May 2010Back and neck issues.

    “I’ve been playing with a bad neck for quite a while. I might have a bulging disk.”

  4. December 2008 – Achilles rupture in right leg.
  5. June 2008Reconstructive surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in left knee
  6. June 2008Stress fractures of left tibia.
  7. April 2008Athroscopic surgery on his left knee.

    “The doctors said I should be able to play in four to six weeks after the surgery, but there are no guarantees about anything right now. I’m just going to work hard and do what they tell me to do.”

  8. July 2007Ruptures anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee
  9. December 2002Surgery to remove fluid inside and around the anterior cruciate ligament
  10. December 1994Surgery to remove two benign tumors and scar tissue in left knee.
