Agent: Tiger’s wrist is “fine”
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

Mark Steinberg, the agent for Tiger Woods, told ESPN.com on Wednesday that the golfer’s wrist “is fine.” Woods was clearly in pain after he hit a tree root on the ninth hole at Augusta National during his approach shot on Sunday at the Masters.

Asked if there were any X-rays or doctor visits required, Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told ESPN.com in an email that “the wrist is fine.”

Following his T17 finish at the Masters, Woods said that a bone popped out and a joint went out of place, but he “popped it” back in.

Despite his obvious progress after taking a two-month leave of absence, Woods added that he wouldn’t play for “a while.” (Which seemed a bit strange.)

He is not qualified for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship (okay, that just felt weird to type) the week of April 27. The next opportunity for Woods to compete would be The Players Championship, the PGA Tour’s flagship event, which he won when he last played it in 2013. Following that, if we’re going by his traditional schedule, his next start would likely be at The Memorial Tournament. He usually plays in the Wells Fargo Championship, which is the week after The Players, but this year Woods’ annual Tiger Jam takes place that weekend.
