Tiger Woods was a relatively healthy man for a long time in his career, but the last few years haven't been so kind to him. After he withdrew from the WGC-Cadillac Championship, it seems his left leg has really become a problem. Here is a list of all his health problems since turning professional.

December, 2002 -- The first of his surgery, Tiger went under the knife to remove fluid around his ACL. He missed five events to start the 2003 season.

July 2007 -- Some might not have known this, but Tiger ruptured his ACL running.

April 2008 -- Tiger had surgery on his left knee just a few days after the Masters to repair some cartilage damage.

June 2008 -- Tiger wins the U.S. Open on basically one leg in a playoff against Rocco Mediate only to have surgery on his left knee that caused Woods to miss eight months, his longest time away from professional golf.

May 2010 -- Woods had to withdraw from the final round of the Players Championship because what he calls a ruptured disc.

April 2011 -- Tiger goes after a shot on the 17th hole at Augusta National in the third round of the Masters, injuring his left knee. Woods went on to finish T-4.

May 2011 -- Tiger again had to leave the Players early because of his knee and Achilles, and missed four months of golf including both the U.S. and British Opens.

March 2012 -- Tiger withdraws with just seven holes to play at the WGC-Cadillac Championship because of a “left leg injury.”
