Injured Woods out of Bay Hill
Tiger Woods will play no part in this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill after suffering a neck strain.
Woods has confirmed he will play no part this week, but was also quick to point out he has no issues with his lower back, that has caused him problems in the past.
The 43-year-old, who is an eight-time Bay Hill winner, says he has no long-term concerns, and hopes to return to action in next week's Players' Championship at Sawgrass.
"I've been receiving treatment but it hasn't improved enough to play," the 14-time major winner confirmed.
Woods won his 80th PGA title, his first for five years, when sealing the season-ending Tour Championship in September of last year and has set his sight on adding to that, hopefully with a major, in 2019.
Woods appears to be over his back issues that required spinal fusion surgery, and is currently ranked 12 in the world.
