Neck strain forces Tiger Woods out of Arnold Palmer Invitational tournament

Tiger reiterated that he hoped he would be ready for the Players. Maybe he actually strained his neck at one of those tournaments, but nothing about his play or demeanor at either tournament suggested that he was anything but healthy.

Woods, an 8-time victor at Bay Hill, has made three starts in 2019, improving his result each week. "I've been receiving treatment, but it hasn't improved enough to play". The Listowel, Ont. native is 50th in FedEx Cup points after finishing second at the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall and tied for third at the Sony Open in Hawaii this January after Monday qualifying.

"For the better part of four to six months, I had to be helped out of bed every day", Woods said in an interview with ESPN in March 2018, after finishing tied for fifth and 10-under par at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He continued in a follow-up tweet: "I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans". The Arnold Palmer has been a favorite hunting ground for Woods over the years, with the 43-year-old winning at Bay Hill a record 8 times.

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.

"It's pretty cool to have his name associated with it because he's such a legend", Trainer said as he took a break from his preparations for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. That could change if he misses TPC Sawgrass next week.

Woods has played well tee-to-green this year but has been held back by some of the worst putting of his career. He did make sure to note that his injury is not considered long-term.
