Chronicles of Pain

Tiger Woods has had his share of injuries big and small

1995, College Troubles

Fresh off his first semester at Stanford, Tiger Woods had surgery in December 1994 to remove scar tissue and two tumors from his left knee.

Short-term damage: The surgery was mostly a preventative measure and it happened in the off-season, so not much.

Long-term damage: Also not much; Woods rebounded by finishing T-41 in his first Masters and defended his U.S. Amateur title and we didn't hear about the left knee again until 2002.
