Bulging Disk. Really?

Okay, one more post about Tiger Woods (hey he’s doing it to himself). He’s withdrawn from The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, Florida, blaming an injury he fears might be a bulging disk in his upper back. Again: Really?

He has set himself up for so many one liner responses (mark our words, you’ll hear them on Letterman and Leno this week). But we’ll keep it clean and just go with this one: Tiger, it’s really the monkey on your back that’s tampering with your ability to play. Seek out the wisdom in your dogs’ eyes. Re-group with the pack. Your family needs you. Golf doesn’t.

Read about a golfer the media should be following for inspiration in the latest issue of The New Barker: Dog lover and professional golfer, Ken Green. Pick up a copy at any independent dog boutique, veterinarian and bookstore in Florida.

And truly, best of luck to Tiger and his family.
