Default Tiger Woods to miss The Masters

http://www.cbssports.com/golf/eye-on...s-2014-masters

This should answer some questions about how serious the back injury is. Say what you will about the man, but for him to miss The Masters is a HUGE deal. The Masters is probably the one tournament that he holds above all others. It is also the only major he hadn't missed since turning pro.

I'm not a Tiger Woods hater, but this is a serious question .. Do you guys think this is a result of PEDs?

To answer your question in short...no.

PEDs do not contribute directly to injury.

Could it of had and effect... Yes

This is a loaded question with a lot of physiological factors at play.

He released it on his Twitter and his Website. I doubt it is April Fools considering his agent said a decision would be coming "shortly" when asked about it yesterday.

The PED question is an interesting one. Personally, I don't see where PED's give you much of an advantage in golf. However, they would explain a lot of the injuries that he seems to be having lately.

PED's can be used for more rapid injury recovery, and he's certainly dealt with his share of those. Also, a big part of Tiger's game has always been his length, and strength contributes to that.

As one in the Golf business, the game of golf, at this level, takes so much out of ones body. Most players have physical problems from the practicing, travel and playing and you will never hear about it. The modern mechanical swing that is used today adds to the stress on their bodies. Expect to see more top players fight the injury bug as time goes on.

This is why it is more important ever for the golfers to be in good shape.

The way the article that I read sounded, he may even miss the US Open at Pinehurst.

I get that PED's make you stronger, but golf is more about touch and accuracy than brute strength. I just feel like they would harm your golf game, not to mention your body, more than they would benefit.

PED's can help with golf, especially considering how Tiger was able to separate himself from the field.

1. As previously stated, it allows you to recover quicker from injuries. In golf, even minor injuries can keep a player from being able to compete consistently because the golf swing is such a precise movement.

2. At Tiger's peak, he separated himself from the field by having an extremely powerful swing. This also goes back to point 1, because you can see that the violence of his old swing motion has now taken a severe toll on his body.

I suspect that he may have been using PED's and that when the Thanksgiving incident occurred that thrust his personal life into the national spotlight, he felt that he needed to abandon PED's. This could explain why his level of play dropped off so drasticly after that and why he has had so many lingering injuries since then. Obviously I don't know for sure, and I'm not even sure if I believe it, but it's just a suspicion that has crossed my mind.

I agree with what you stated in your post. I worked the Masters with the CBS Camera Crews for 10 years and saw Tiger Woods at his best and he could out drive everybody back then. He just looked so much more powerful and stronger than the rest of the field. Looking back, it may have been PED's that helped him get the edge on the rest of the field. To see him drop off like he has in the last few years does make you wonder??? Almost like watching A-Rod.
