Tiger Woods Withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational Due to Neck Strain


Citing a neck strain, Tiger Woods has officially withdrawn from the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods, an eight-time winner at Bay Hill, was set to make his fourth start of the season in Orlando this week.

“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.

“I’ve been receiving treatment, but it hasn’t improved enough to play. My lower back is fine, and I have no long-term concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players.”

He continued in a second tweet: “I’d like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans. Its connection to Arnold makes it one of my favorite tournaments and I’m disappointed to miss it.”
