Tiger Woods to Miss Arnold Palmer Invitational With Back Spasms

Tiger Woods will miss the Arnold Palmer Invitational on golf’s U.S. PGA Tour this week because of back spasms.

Woods tied for 25th place at the Cadillac Championship March 9 after lower back pain forced him to withdraw from the final round of the Honda Classic on March 2.

The top-ranked golfer’s withdrawal from the Orlando event comes less than a month before the Masters Tournament, which starts April 10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Woods hasn’t won the opening major of the year since he claimed a fourth victory at the 2005 edition.

“Unfortunately, my back spasms and the pain haven’t subsided,” Woods said in a statement on his website. “It’s too early to know about the Masters, and I will continue to be evaluated and work closely with my doctors.”

Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a record eighth time in 2013. The tournament is due to begin March 20.
