Tiger Woods plays down back injury fears after Arnold Palmer Invitational withdrawal

Adjust Comment Print

Tiger Woods has announced that he's withdrawing from the Arnold Palmer Invitational later this week.

Woods said he's had the strain for a few weeks (he played in the WGC-Mexico Championship two weeks ago, for what it's worth). Tiger reiterated that he hoped he would be ready for the Players.

Woods also skipped this past weekend's Honda Classic, working through a busy Florida schedule going into the Masters which starts on April 11.

A hard game, opponent, and the wind and weather circumstances didn't help for football in general, it was just a fight. "You see that on the training ground, and as a player of Liverpool you know that you don't play all the games".

The 43-year-old, eight-times victor of the tournament at Bay Hill in Orlando, announced on Twitter that he had been struggling with the problem for some time. The 43-year-old won his first in 2000 and took the top spot in the three following.

"I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans", Woods posted.

Assuming Woods plays next week and comes out of it with no injuries, then he will likely add one (or maybe even two) more tournaments to his schedule before Augusta.

He continued: "He told me if they ever found out what we were doing , he and I would go to jail for the rest of our lives". He'd purchased the Neverland Ranch one year earlier, and it was a three-hour drive from the city.

There are a lot of questions here - most best saved for another day - but it is worth questioning why Woods played at Riviera and Mexico if he had the strain.

ReutersThe PGA Tour's Rookie of the Year honor has been renamed after the late Arnold Palmer, one of the sport's greatest players whose enormous popularity drew a legion of fans to the game. Woods finished tied for second at the Valspar past year, and it seems as if he would come back if he could.

His three-putt at the next, where he missed a five-footer, was not quite as dramatic but hardly less disappointing for one of the greatest talents to have played the game.
