As caddie Joe LaCava stalked the Valhalla Golf Club on Monday, gathering intelligence for his star player, the burning question about Tiger Woods focused on ‘Will he or won’t he’ play in this week’s PGA Championship.

But there’s perhaps a more fitting question: Should he?

When Woods fell into a bunker Sunday and later withdrew from the final round of the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, the golf world grimaced right along with him. Woods said he “jarred” his back and it had been spasming afterwards.

Seeing the greatest player of his generation tee it up this week would be jarring in and of itself.
