Video: Tiger Woods' struggling with back issues during the Barclays
Tiger Woods is playing fine golf on Friday at the Barclays, but it's his back that's the issue.
There are plenty of factors going against Tiger Woods' quest to break Jack Nicklaus' major record, but maybe the most underrated is his health. Tiger has struggled over the years with plenty of health issues, missing majors and taking months off to get well and just when things get good again, it seems something comes up.
On Friday at the Barclays, it was a new thing for Tiger. Woods started to wince in his second round of the first FedEx Cup playoff event, grabbing his back and event commenting to his caddie, Joe LaCava, that he felt like LaCava's former boss, Fred Couples (Freddie has always battled with back issues throughout his career).
The above video is a birdie putt that Tiger drained, but watch how he picks up the ball out of the hole. He struggles to get low, does a weird move and even kinda limps off as the video fads.
Obviously more on this as news breaks, but for now, Tiger is struggling with a new ailment.
