You tell us, BFFs — is Tiger’s neck injury just another excuse?

Tiger Woods seems to be failing all over the board — first in his marriage to Elin Nordegren, and now on the golf course! He pulled out of The Players Championship on May 8 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., telling reporters he is injured and “might have a bulging disk.” If he really is too hurt to continue playing, we understand. … But do you think it’s a coincidence that he withdrew from the competition as he was in danger of ending his winning streak? USA Today reports that Tiger has held onto his No. 1 ranking for 258 consecutive weeks, a record that would certainly come to an end as he was projected to finish the competition in lower than fifth place.
