Tiger withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational with neck strain

Tiger withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational with neck strain

Woods said he has been dealing with the strain for a few weeks.

"I saw him in Mexico getting treatment before and after he played; he did have some tape on his upper back".

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

"I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans", wrote Woods. "Its connection to Arnold makes it one of my favorite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it", Woods said in a follow-up tweet.

Tiger Woods is coming off a 10th-place finish at the WGC-Mexico Championship, and there was plenty of optimism from the TIGER BACK crowd heading into this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

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.
