Tiger Woods struggled through a back injury in the FedEx Cup playoff opener at The Barclays, and after finishing just one shot short of champion Adam Scott, the world No. 1's status moving forward is in jeopardy.

Woods was within striking distance of his sixth win of the 2013 season when his back flared up on the back nine at Liberty National Golf Course. After hitting his second shot to the par-five 13th hole, the pain caused Woods to collapse to knees, per CBS Sports:
