Honestly, all I can think of when I hear or read about this story is Gob Bluth from Arrested Development.

Earlier in November while in China Brandt Snedeker busted up his knee while trying to get off a Segway -- the motorized two-wheel scooters that tourists often use to sightsee. 

Snedeker had to miss the HSBC Champions because of the injury and, though he's ahead of schedule, he will also pull out of Tiger Woods' tournament in December, the Nothwestern Mutual World Challenge.

This whole thing is unbelievable to me. Is there video? I've scoured YouTube to no avail but if there's video I want it to surface ASAP.

How do you injure yourself getting off a Segway?! This isn't really helping the whole "golfers aren't athletes" argument.

Also, Jordan Spieth (my man) will replace Snedeker at the Tiger event.
