Tiger Woods Injures Knee And Back At The 2012 Barclays

Tiger Woods has apparently injured his knee and back during the second round of The 2012 Barclays held at Bethpage Black in Old Bethpage, NY.

Woods hit an awkward tee shot and immediately grabbed his left knee and grimaced. His left knee is the same knee that he famously injured during the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods had to have surgery on his knee after the tournament once doctors found out that he tore his ACL, and has been unable to win a major in the four years since his victory. Woods has continued to have problems since his original injury including a ruptured Achilles tendon while rehabbing his torn ACL.

Woods has decided to continue with his round and currently sits at 4-under par after 10 holes. Tiger sits just four strokes behind first round leader Nick Watney, who sits at 8-under par.
