Tiger Woods popped a bone back into place during the Masters final round

Tiger Woods apparently popped a bone back into place in the middle of the final round of the 2015 Masters.

Woods injured his hand when he hit a tree root with his club while hitting his second shot from the pine straw on the par-4 ninth. Woods dropped his club immediately after hitting the shot, grasping his wrist. He went on to make par, but grabbed the ball from the hole with his left hand, tipped his cap with the left hand and fist-bumped a patron with the left hand.

Apparently, that's because he dislocated a bone in his hand. After the round, Woods told Bill Macatee about the on-course procedure.

"A bone kind of popped off and a joint went out of place, and I just kind of put it back in," Woods said.

Macatee was taken aback. "Really?!"

Woods, nonchalantly answered, "Yeah."

So there you have it.

Woods shot a final-round 73 to finish at 5 under for the tournament. The 14-time major winner said he'll take some time off before he plays next, which may well be The Players Championship.
