Tiger Woods says "a bone popped out" on shot on 9th hole, but he was able to "put it back in"

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Just when you thought Tiger Woods was finally healthy, he ran into more trouble on the 9th hole of the Masters on Sunday. The good news is it wasn't his back. Or his knee. Or the other knee.

Instead it appeared to be Woods' wrist that he injured when hitting ~~a tree root ~~with his second shot (Update: it appears it was not a root, but a particularly hard part of the ground). Upon impact, Woods immediately let go of his club, and started shaking his right wrist. While clearly aggravated the rest of the hole, Woods was able to get up and down for par, but bogeyed the 10th after spraying the tee shot way right.

__Another update:__In his post-round interview with CBS' Bill Macatee, Woods said "a bone popped out" when he hit the shot on 9, but he was able "to put it back in."

Although he's been spared wrist problems as a pro, Woods did withdraw from the 2005 U.S. Open at Shinnecock after injuring his left wrist hitting out of heavy rough.

At the time of the injury, Woods, who is playing with Rory McIlroy, was one over for the day and 12 shots behind leader Jordan Spieth. His injury was met with swift reaction on social media.
