Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer over neck problem

Over the years, the 43-year-old golfer has had four procedures on his left knee and a number of other, lesser injuries.

Woods has officially teed off three times in 2019 taking part in the Farmers Insurance Open, Genesis Open and WGC-Mexico Championship.

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.

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, set for next week. My lower back is fine, and I have not long-time concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players. The first - The Masters - takes place in just over a month.

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.




Cauley is coming off a T-12 finish at the Honda Classic and got into this week's field after Tiger Woods withdrew.

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 declined to speak to the media afterwards, something he has done only a handful of times over his career.

Woods (69) tied for 10th, 13 shots behind Johnson.

He still ranks fifth on the PGA Tour list of all-time tournament wins with 62, including seven major championships.
