Pain in the neck for Woods

ORLANDO, May 13- Tiger Woods is suffering from an inflammed neck joint, an MRI scan revealled on Wednesday.
Woods announced on his website that he has been diagnosed with inflammation of the facet joint in his neck and says he will treat it with physio therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs and massages.

He said the injury gives him headaches and he has trouble moving his head from side-to-side.

"I want to thank everyone for their caring and concern," Woods said. "I now need to take care of this condition and will return to playing golf when I’m physically able."

The world’s No. 1 player withdrew on the seventh hole of the final round Sunday at The Players Championship.

Woods expects a full recovery, although he did not say when he would be able to return.

Reference to neck pain recalled Woods’ infamous November 27 car crash, which sent him to the hospital and heralded the start of a sex scandal in which more than a dozen women have said they had sex with the married father of two.

Woods’ only prior public reference to a neck problem came at the Masters, when he listed a "busted-up lip and a pretty sore neck" as the only injuries he suffered in the car smash.

American tabloid paper National Enquirer reported last month that Woods confessed to being with as many as 120 different women in the first five-years of his marriage to former Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

The Enquirer said that as part of Woods’ treatment for sex addiction at the Gentle Path center in Mississipi he was required to provide Nordegren with a list of all the women he had slept with.

The newspaper said the last straw for Nordegren was that Woods left out the name of a 21-year-old neighbour whom he had a one-night stand with. He had reportedly known Raychel Coudriet since she as 14.

The story quotes a source saying Nordegren became furious and decided to sign the divorce papers.
