Tiger Woods understands how the visuals came across on social media and TV.
He looked completely broken in Saturday’s relentless rain, as if all the injuries and surgeries were conspiring against him in that very moment, leaving him no choice but to walk away.
Only Woods didn’t exactly walk out of Augusta National after the storms suspended play. He staggered off the course, moving like a man nearly twice his age.
At 47, Woods was smart enough to tell his cornermen that he couldn’t answer the bell for the next round against a heartless opponent — a hilly, 29-hole Sunday at the Masters, which was heavily favored to deliver the knockout.
