Oh that crafty Tiger Woods.

His chiropractic/diagnostic skills are about as good as his golf game these days.

The man who left us with a self-diagnosed "bulging disc" in his neck last Sunday, the man who has become his own pain in the neck, has exactly that.

Woods said on Wednesday that tests showed an inflamed neck joint that causes pain and makes it hard to turn his head. This latest Tiger trauma will require little more than medicine, massage, and rest.

There were no tests conducted on his inflamed scorecards from his past two tournament.

Woods withdrew from the Player's Championship Sunday after seven holes.
