BEIJING, May 10 (Xinhuanet) -- Tiger Woods left the Players Championship game on the seventh hole with neck pain, news reports said on Monday.

Before the eighth round of the game, Tiger Woods suddenly withdrew with his hurting-neck and bowing-head.

Frustrated to take questions, he only said that his doctors suggested that the cause could be the bulging disk in his neck, "I've been playing with a bad neck for quite a while."

Woods felt the pain after he finished his seventh hole, and then asked a marshal for assistance, "I've been playing through it. I can't play through it anymore."

There were many pains for Woods, both physical and emotional, however, it was the first time that his draw has made public attention of his neck problems.
