Tiger Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational after suffering a neck strain.

Woods, ranked 12th, cited a neck strain he said he's had for a few weeks, adding he had no "long-term concerns".

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

He hopes to play in next week's Players' Championship at Sawgrass.

Woods has won the Arnold Palmer Invitational eight times, with his last victory in 2013.


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.

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

Woods last played at the WGC-Mexico Championship from February 21-24, tying for 10th place. The 14-time major victor finished tied for 10th at the 2019 World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship on February 24 in Mexico City. It remains to be seen if he will play the Valspar Championship, where he finished T-2 a year ago, and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play before the Masters.

"Its connection to Arnold makes it one of my favorite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it", he tweeted.
