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.

WRX Retrospective: Interesting photos from the 2019 Masters

Published

on

As of now, we know the 2020 Masters is going to have to wait until November. The tournament will be as exciting as it will be interesting since it will be the first modern glimpse into Augusta National beyond April.

It has also given us the great opportunity to look back with hindsight 20/20 (that was very much an unintended pun) at our pictures from 2019 to showcase some of the most noteworthy and interesting, including some potential foreshadowing of the week that was to come.

2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson isn’t one to change putters too often, but he must have been searching for something last year when testing out this TaylorMade Spider.

This was Viktor Hovland’s last Masters as an amateur. He won low amateur honors and went on to capture the same distinction at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

TaylorMade always does a wonderful job with major-themed accessories and bags. 2019 was no exception.

Little did we know at the time this was taken, this man would be leading heading into Sunday’s final round. How the tables turned so quickly.

Callaway’s collab with Seamus Golf lead to these flower-themed headcovers.

We can’t forget that Tuesday practice day was rained out and the course was closed at 10 a.m. to both players and spectators. It wasn’t the warm spring kickoff many had hoped for!

Although it was short-lived, it was a rainy Tuesday for all, including caddies.

The weather broke on Wednesday and the view up the 10th hole never gets old.

Did you realize two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson’s Flightscope has a custom pink paint job?

Inexpensive snacks and beverages are always a highlight of any Master’s visit.

The 2019 Masters featured pre-bulked Bryson, who also happened to have a custom FlightScope X3. He looks like a veritable stick!

They say a picture says 1,000 words, but in the case of Tiger Woods, we had no idea how many words would be written come Sunday.

A peek into the bag of Gary Woodland, who would go on to become the U.S. Open Champion only a few months later.

Special shoutout to Gary Woodland’s caddy Brennan Little, who hails from St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, and is obviously a big Toronto Blue Jays fan. He was also on the bag for Mike Wier’s win in 2003.

Although the relationship was short-lived, Sergio used some very cool custom Toulon putters while on staff with Callaway Golf.

The eighth green is one of the most interesting and mounded on the course, there’s not a bunker to be found but danger lurks everywhere.

Undulations at No. 1 are a sight to be seen at ground level.

The iconic, understated clubhouse of ANGC.

The tucked-away first tee spike cleaner is something every course should have.

And of course, the iconic 12th, where so much would be decided come Sunday.
