Golf Channel reporter Win McMurry replaced an "s" with a "c" during a broadcast on Sunday when describing Tiger Woods' withdrawal from the last round of The Players Championship due to a bulging disk.
"(Woods) says he's been playing with a bad neck for about a month and thinks it could be a bulging dick," said the blonde broadcaster.
She quickly corrected which part of the golfer's anatomy was bulging.
Woods said he first felt the injury before the Masters and plans to have an MRI next week. Woods said he has felt a tingling sensation on his right side down to his fingers.

It is the first time he has withdrawn from a tournament since the Nissan Open at Riviera in 2006, when he narrowly made the cut and withdrew from the final two rounds because of the flu.
It was Woods' third tournament back from his five-month hiatus after a sex scandal. He tied for fourth at the Masters but missed the cut at Quail Hollow last week.
McMurry worked for CBS affiliate WCBS and CBS Sports in 2005 covering the NFL, NCAA Football and Basketball and the PGA TOUR.
