Tiger Woods abruptly withdraws from Players Championship

After shooting a dismal 5-over through the front nine at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday morning, Tiger Woods has decided to withdraw from the tournament tweets the Golf Channel’s Jason Sobel.

Tiger is citing “multiple injuries” for his poor shooting and his decision to withdraw. At this point, it’s unclear what injuries he sustained but Sobel is reporting that the news shouldn’t come as a surprise because Woods “was injured coming into the week and looked injured today.” Ironically, he also withdrew from The Players Championship last year when he was dealing with a bulging disc.

According to ESPN.com, Woods “played bogey golf and visibly winced after hitting his approach shot onto the fifth green.” Nobody was sure whether the reaction was from pain that he was experiencing or frustration over his play, but it’s clear now that he hurt himself on that hole (or at least aggravated a previous injury).

TPC Sawgrass has been a major nemesis of Woods throughout the years, as he has not recorded a single top-10 finish there this past decade. He did win the event in 2001, but since then the course has proved to be a major pain (pun definitely intended).

You’d have to go back to September 13, 2009 for when Tiger last won a PGA event.
