Is Tiger Woods limping? Golf fans freak out over new GOLFTV video

April 25, 2019

It’s been nearly two weeks since Tiger Woods won his fifth green jacket and 15th major title at the Masters, but the celebrations aren’t ceasing anytime soon.

Last week, Tiger was spotted wearing the green jacket during a night out at his restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, and on on Thursday, GOLFTV — an on-demand video streaming service that announced a content partnership with Tiger earlier this year — released a video of the Big Cat’s triumphant visit to the studio, where he was presented with a customized premium parking space (“2019 Masters Champ”) and a cake that was decorated with a photo of his winning moment on Augusta National’s 18th green.

It was a nice-looking celebration but for one small detail — in each shot where Tiger could be seen walking, he didn’t seem like himself. He appeared stiff, uncomfortable and moving somewhat gingerly — and Twitter took notice.

While many commenters seemed concerned for Tiger’s health, others offered ideas on what could be ailing Mr. Woods.

Tiger’s most recent injury was a neck strain back in March, but he has not publicly reported any issues with his back. With the year’s next major only weeks away, one thing’s for sure: staying healthy is a definite priority.
