The neck the latest obstacle to Wood's success

"Setting up over the ball is fine, but once I start making the motion, it's downhill from there," Woods said.

If anyone out there has ever had a bad neck or back, you know it's impossible to swing properly and the pain is terrible.

The upcoming MRI will most likely dictate what Woods does with the rest of the year.

If the injury turns out to be something very serious, he'll most likely have to shut it down all year.

If the injury is manageable, I have to imagine he'll at least play the year's three remaining majors and then shut it down if there's still a problem. It will take something very serious to keep him away from Pebble, St. Andrews, and Whistling Straights.
