KXIP vs KKR Live Score

At least it's not his back.

Since his long awaited return to PGA competition back in December 2017 following a spinal fusion surgery in April of that year, Tiger, had not withdrew from any tournament golf he was scheduled to play.

Tiger Woods set golf's alarm bells ringing on Monday night by pulling out of this week's PGA Tour event with a neck injury.

Woods, who last won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2013, made a run at Bay Hill a year ago but finished five shots behind victor Rory McIlroy in a share of fifth place after his late charge fizzled with a pair of bogeys at the 16th and 17th holes. Woods said he has been dealing with the strain for a few weeks.

McIlroy added that he isn't overly anxious about Woods' health and in the tweet sent on Monday Woods said, "My lower back is fine, and I have no long-term concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players [next week]".

"I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans", wrote Woods.

The World No.11 was playing his first round at Bay Hill with Rickie Fowler and Iain Poulter, but lasted just six holes before withdrawing with a back injury. Now that he has unexpectedly lost a week, it sure does increase the chances of seeing him around here again this year if he is healthy.

Tiger added that he's hoping to be ready for The Players Championship beginning on March 14.

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