Palm Harbour, Fla. March 17
Retief Goosen was about ready to give up. His lower back was in so much pain that he decided to withdraw next week from Bay Hill so he could get treatment. A double bogey late in his round knocked him nine spots down the leaderboard, which he figured was the end of his hopes to get into the Masters.
One day later, everything changed. Retief decided Friday to pull out of Bay Hill and arranged for a protein injection in Virginia on Wednesday. Suddenly, he is able to play and the final round is packed with significance.
WOW..it bothers me just to type this..an injection??? How about FIXING the problem!
