NEW YORK: Tigers Wood has decided to leave his favourite event after suffering in the back injury from Arnold Palmer Golf tournament.
Woods made the announcement on his website, citing back issues that caused him to withdraw from the Honda Classic on March 2 and struggled through the Cadillac Championship two weeks ago at Doral.
“Unfortunately, my back spasms and the pain haven’t subsided. It’s too early to know about the Masters, and I will continue to be evaluated and work closely with my doctors. I feel badly that I won’t be able to play in this great tournament this week.”
The 38-year-old American failed to finish the Honda Classic at Palm Beach Gardens earlier this month, quitting after 13 holes in his final round.
