That, folks, is what it looks like when you try to play golf with serious lower back pain

Tiger Woods walked with a limp and grimaced in pain (as seen above), but he managed to play through it — and very well — and shot an excellent two-under 69 on Friday afternoon at Bethpage Black. The golf course showed its real face in the second round of The Barclays and conditions were firm and fast (almost major-like with shades of the ’09 U.S. Open).

Coincidentally enough, while Tiger’s back was ailing him, I wasn’t at Bethpage because I spent the day at the doctor’s office getting treatment for my crappy back condition, so that — no joke — I could walk without a limp. I feel your pain, Tiger! I really do. I recommend muscle trigger therapy. I can refer you to my doc in the city.

Well, just let me know, Tig!
