The former world golf number one Tiger Woods has been mocked on social media, labelled a "dramatic chump" for claiming he re-inserted a bone in his wrist that "popped out" while playing the Masters.
Woods screamed in pain and shook his hand after catching a tree root with his club during a final round shot.
"A bone kind of popped out, and a joint kind of went out of place. But I put it back in," the 14-time major champion explained afterwards.
The comment sent Twitter into a frenzy, as viewers insisted Woods' gruesome self-diagnosis was implausible.
"TIGER WOODS must have misspoken. No way to finish round if a "bone popped out in wrist and put back in". Great golfer but not a doctor," former NFL team doctor David Chao wrote.
"TigerWoods I didn't know you were an orthopedic surgeon. I call BS on that. You did not reduce a dislocation today. Wtf?" another user added.
Despite the injury, Woods said he was proud of his performance at Augusta National, finishing with a five-under-par 283 (equal 17th) following a two-month layoff.
