Less than 48 hours after his sudden death triumph at Torrey Pines, Tiger Woods announced today that he requires reconstructive knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and will not compete again in 2008. Back in April, 48 hours after winning the Masters, Woods had an arthroscopic procedure on his knee done. Woods was hoping to wait until after 2008 to have the reconstructive procedure done but he sustained a stress fracture of the left tibia on top of the problems he's had with the ACL and was visibly in a lot of pain this past weekend. Woods originally sustained his injury while running near his Orlando home shortly after playing in the 2007 British Open. Amazingly, Woods has played some of his best golf over the past year. And that is saying something because he is the very best in his sport. If Tiger can win the U.S. Open on a broken leg imagine what he could do once he is fully healthy again.
