Tiger Woods at the U.S. Open

Five years after limping through his last major victory with a serious

leg injury, Tiger Woods appears to be dealing with new pain.

The No. 1 golfer in the world was shaking his left wrist after hitting a

shot out of the thick rough on the very first hole of the U.S. Open.

Woods appeared to grimace in pain after hitting the approach shot, only

his second swing of the tournament.
