Series: Golf Buzz

In case you missed it over the weekend, Tiger Woods had an injury scare while playing in the third round of the Turkish Airlines Open.
The world's No. 1 player hit a wayward tee shot on the par-5 11th hole. Rather than try to play it safe from a wooded area, Woods unleashed a vicious strike with a fairway wood. Immediately after making contact with the ball, Woods let go of his club and winced in pain, reaching for his right hand.
You can watch the video here:
Incredibly Woods still made birdie. He would finish the round with a 4-under 68, looking no worse for wear.
"It's a little tender," Woods said following the round. "I smoked it on something. I don’t know what it was, but I hit something hard."
