Tiger Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational

Tiger Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational

Tiger Woods announced via Twitter on Monday he is withdrawing from the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida.

Woods, who returned to competition last season after a lengthy recovery from spinal fusion surgery, said he had been dealing with the strain for a few weeks and that he hoped to play in The Players Championship next week.

Woods added that his lower back is fine, and he's not concerned about the injury long term.

And think about this: If the PGA Tour schedule stayed the same as it was last season, when the Valspar Championship was in early March, Woods would be withdrawing from our tournament.

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.

Despite the putting problems, the 14-times major champion shot a respectable one-under-par 70 to trail leader Dustin Johnson by 10 strokes heading into Sunday's final round.

"2) I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans". He took last week off after playing in the WGC tournament in Mexico.

He says he hopes to be ready the following week for The Players Championship.

Woods has played well tee-to-green this year but has been held back by some of the worst putting of his career. Then comes the WCG Match Play tournament. "Its connection to Arnold makes it one of my favorite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it".

"We know Tiger would be here if he could and we look forward to having him return in the future", Arnold Palmer Invitational Tournament Director Marci Doyle said.
