Woods pulls out of Bay Hill with neck strain

  • Tiger Woods last played in the World Golf Championships Mexico Championship on Feb. 24 in Mexico City

"Unfortunately, due to a neck strain that I've had for a few weeks, I'm forced to withdraw from the API", Woods wrote on Twitter.

Woods publicly announced on Monday that his recent treatment for a neck strain had not improved enough to take part in the tour event.

The 14-time major victor insists that it is not a long-term complaint, but his history of back injuries makes the concern inevitable.

Woods has officially teed off three times in 2019 taking part in the Farmers Insurance Open, Genesis Open and WGC-Mexico Championship. Woods finished tied for second at the Valspar a year ago, and it seems as if he would come back if he could.

The Players Championship is from March 14 to 17 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Champ, Long and Trainer are among the 122 players at Bay Hill Club & Lodge gearing up to play one of the biggest tournaments of the season even as they process the Palmer legacy.

Woods is expected by many to compete for majors this year.

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. Woods has only four events to play before the Masters - The Players, the Valspar Championship, the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and the Valero Texas Open.

In a post on Twitter, Woods said the problem was unrelated to the lower back issues which sidelined him for almost two years, and added he had no concern over his long-term fitness.

Woods - who is dating Erica Herman after splitting with former flame Lindsey Vonn in 2015- has not suffered any serious injuries since returning to competition at the Hero World Challenge in December of 2017, according to Golf Digest.
