I Guess This Will Give You a Sore Back

Ever watch those guys on the range that just hold nothing back? You sit there thinking to yourself, "Man, that has gotta hurt!" Welcome to Rory McIlroy's world.

The world number seven (Ed. Note: He's already number seven?!? Wowzers.) is complaining of back problems, at the ripe age of 20, but says it shouldn't hold him back from playing in the Accenture Match Play this month.

Two things I learned while reading about McIlroy's back issues. First, he's 20, but has a yearly back scan to make sure there are no problems. Second, his agent's first name is Chubby. The only thing that would make that info better is if I found out in the next month that his agent had once had his hand bitten off by an alligator, but retaliated by removing the bastard's eyeball and carries it around with him. Yep, that would be awesome news.

Backs are no respectors of age. My brother had back problems before he finished high school, then cracked a vertebrae his freshman year...then did the impossible and cracked the same one his junior year. (collegiate tennis player)

Just heard this morning that Jesper Parnevik is again laid up with back problems - also a cracked vertebrae.
