Tiger Woods, the Sultan of Secrets, is at it again.

This time it's that neck of his.

The latest in the long, make that the oh so very long list of Tiger's woes and personal problems came as a revelation on the seventh hole of the TPC on Sunday.

In the midst of yet another hackfest by the world's No. 1 player (for now), Woods announced quietly, "I'm done."

The Duke of Drama, just when we thought he might try on normal, is at it again.

"I asked if it was his wrist," said playing partner Jason Bohn. "He said it was his neck. He flinched a bit when he shook hands."

Then Woods was off, a quick stop at the fitness/training facility, then a quicker declaration of a possible "bulging disc" in the neck.

Earlier in the week, Woods declared himself "Fine, 100 percent."

It continues to be a trend that no one can believe a word this guys says, anymore.

Woods says he's been "fighting through it" all along.

Perhaps its a lingering effect from the headlock that Elin had on him Thanksgiving evening last year.

Whatever it is, there is even more doubt on the overall condition of Woods, mentally AND physically, as the tour counts down to the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Woods former coach, Butch Harmon, says his former pupil needs mental help, perhaps in the form of a psychiatrist.

Whatever Woods does or doesn't need, he's in a complete state of disrepair, physically and mentally.

So the ongoing Tiger Woods saga continues to steal the headlines. Woods' problems, just like that pain in his neck, may not be going away anytime soon.
