Tiger Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational with injury

Published

on

Owing to a neck strain that’s been bothering him “for a few weeks,” Tiger Woods announced today he is withdrawing from this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, while stressing that his surgically repaired back is “fine” and that he has “no long-term concerns.”

The 14-time major champion posted the following to Twitter

The 43-year-old hasn’t missed a tournament due to injury since returning to competition following his April, 2017 spinal fusion surgery at the Hero World Challenge in December of that year.

In three starts this year, Woods has not made public mention of any injuries.

He most recently competed at the WGC-Mexico Championship, tying for 10th.

Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational eight times (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013).

Woods is next expected in action at next week’s Players Championship.

    Too bad. Every time he plays on TV, my old Scotty Cameron’s value goes up.

    I have really enjoyed watching Tiger play again, but knew as hard as he plays that the injuries would be back. He will have to be careful with his neck!

    Probably strained his neck looking down on them haters.

    Tiger not relevant anymore huh? He’s 12th in the OWGR playing only a few tournaments after coming back from surgery in the 2017 Hero World Challenge. I wanna see some of these clowns jump that high up and that fast in the rankings.

    Also TV ratings are up when he plays. Saying that he’s irrelevant is not only wrong and disrespectful; it’s also ignorant.

      I’m a huge Tiger fan but he looks old and washed up, even if he’s climbed up the rankings, he can’t come within 10 strokes of the leader in tourneys like D.J. last week. Sorry. Now he can’t even make it into the month of March without injuries, very sad to see. I want him to bet Jack’s record but not holding my breath.

        Well I’m big fan of tiger also. D.J. just happened to be on that week and Tiger wasn’t. I’m not saying Tiger will ever dominate like he used to but even in losing he’s playing playing pretty good golf and will continue to compete. Yeah, I know we want him to win but him just being there makes it more interesting.

      ABSOLUTELY! the drama queen of “injuries”…nothing newsworthy here

        Tigers lower back is fused, so of course there is no pain.

        He continues to stress his back with that swing, so naturally the damage is now in upper back and neck.

        Needs to go back to his swing of 2000, before Hank, Butch, Sean and Chris managed to steepen his swing and which has done a number on Tigers body. Go back to swing of 2000 or retire, Tiger, before you become an invalid.

Shriners Open Tour Truck Report: New Titleist Pro V1 seeding, Morikawa in P7MC, Prototype PXG irons

Published

on

Here’s what I’m hearing from my sources inside the trucks at TPC Summerlin.

Titleist

Jimmy Walker had a new Titleist TSi3 (9 degree, 45 inches, D5) built with a Fujikura Ventus Blue 7 X and was hitting a personal best 185 MPH ball speed in Foresight (normalized). The new driver was head weighted (hot melt placement) a bit differently and the weight setting in the back was moved to the draw setting.

In prep for Augusta, plenty of fresh wedges built by Aaron Dill…

Pro V1/X ball seeding in progress with Charley Hoffman, Greg Chalmers, Cameron Tringale, and Rory Sabbatini. All putting them in play straight away. More info in our report for PGATour.com.

Callaway

Adam Hadwin switched into a Mavrik Sub Zero 10.5 degree with a Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana DF 70 TX shaft.

Si Woo Kim made a number of shaft changes to the top of his bag going into a new Mavrik Sub Zero Driver (Triple Diamond) 9 degrees, Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 X shaft. Mavrik Sub Zero 3-wood. 15 degrees with a Fujikura Ventus Blue 7 X shaft, and a Mavrik Sub Zero 5-wood. 18 degrees with Ventus Blue 8 X.

TaylorMade

Collin Morikawa is now playing a full set of TaylorMade’s new P7MC irons with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts. Morikawa finally ditched his trusty muscle back P730’s that he won the PGA with and has been in since college.

Jason Day put a set of P7MB irons (4-PW) coming out of his highly modified P760’s. The new irons are armed with True Temper X7 shafts and come out to a degree stronger in loft than TM standard and D3 swing weight. No further modifications were made for Day who in the past required tungsten plugs in his P760’s.

Oddly enough, Morikawa and Day swapped chairs from an iron profile perspective

In addition, Day added a P790 3-iron that took the place of his SIM Max 5-wood.

Ping

Cameron Champ regripped his entire set switching from the Lamkin UTX to Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet Align. Champ also switched driver shafts again going from his trusty Fujikura Pro White Tour Spec 63 X back into the Project X HZURDUS “Hulk”.

  • Driver: Ping G410 LST (9.5 degrees, flat+, CG shifter in neutral, 5g face, 5g toe weight)
    Shaft: Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green 70G-6.5 TX (44.25″, tipped 1.5″, D4)

Gear head icon KJ Choi made the ultimate switch this week as he went from the super game improvement Ping G410’s into the forged muscle back Blueprint irons w/ KBS Tour 120 S shafts. That’s like going from an aircraft carrier to a Porsche 911.

PXG

Wyndham Clark has put a prototype set of 0211FB (4-9) in the bag equipped with Nippon Pro3 Modus 130X shafts.

And on the European Tour…

…TSi is catching serious fire

Sam Horsfield switched into the Titleist TSi3 driver (8 degrees @7.25), D2 Surefit with a Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei White AV Raw 75 TX shaft.

Matthew Fitzpatrick finally relinquished his beloved TaylorMade M2 and swapped into a Titleist TSi3 (9 degrees) with a  Graphite Design Tour AD BB 6 X shaft.
