Tiger Woods withdrew from The Players Championship today, citing a neck injury. After hitting a tee shot, Woods called for an official, and after hitting a second shot, it was clear that the adulterous golf pro was in a great deal of pain. Woods then walked to the middle of the fairway, shook hands with playing partner Jason Bohn and left in a golf cart.

"I've been playing through it," Woods told reporters. "I can't play through it anymore." Woods said he did not know what caused the injury, only that "playing doesn't help it."

Woods said he plans to have an MRI next week and he added that he may have a bulging disk in his upper back.
