Tiger Woods Crutches: He Doesn't Want to Talk About It (VIDEO)
Tiger offers $1 mill for reporters to boot temptation.
Tiger Woods was so desperate for reporters not to ask about his crutches that before Tuesday morning's presser, he tweeted, "Almost press conference time. I'll donate one million dollars to @TWFoundation if no one asks me about the leg." And, of course, you know what happened next.
Yep, the very first reporter during Tuesday's Q&A just had to ask about Tiger Woods' crutches. Don't these guys follow him on Twitter? Woods dodged the question and focused his answer on his plans to come back to golf when he heals: "I tried to play and unfortunately it didn't work out that well. That's why I've shut it down, been wearing a boot and been on crutches to try to give it ample rest."

Still no word on what exactly happened that led to Tiger Woods' crutches...could it be that Woods was engaged in some raunchy rendezvous that blew out his knee? Yeah, that's the old gutterbrain at work; and it's more likely Woods is suffering recurring problems related to his ACL, which he's tried to address in past surgeries. Woods said this time he feels pain specifically in his Achilles tendon, his calf and and his lower back.

Woods went on to reveal that he'll "probably" start training next week to play U.S. Open next month at Congressional. "Obviously," Woods said of his health, "it's not what it was when I was little.''
But his generosity may be growing up...want to know what happened to the money Tiger promised to the Tiger Woods Foundation? After the press conference he tweeted his plans: "Bet was over after first question but of course I'm going to give the money to the @TWFoundation.".
