Tiger Withdraws From Northern Trust

Tiger Withdraws From Northern Trust”

The withdrawal comes after a lackluster opening round of four shots over at Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City, New Jersey, leaving the embattled golfer 13 strokes below the leader.

Woods withdrew three days prior to the start of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March with a neck strain, but this is the first time since the 2017 Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour that he has withdrawn during an event.

Continuing where he left off after missing the cut at the British Open, Woods appeared stiff and out of sorts and withdrew with a side strain ahead of the second round in New Jersey. "I'd like to thank the New Jersey and NY fans for their support and remain hopeful I can compete next week at the BMW Championship", Woods concluded.

Woods is back in a tie for 116th after battling to a four-over 75 that included a double bogey and five bogeys.

We talked about how disinterested in golf Tiger Woods has seemed recently.

"It just feels frustrating to shoot anything high no matter how I feel", Woods said. But he has said on numerous occasions that although his spine is fused, the "force has to go somewhere", and that it leads to some other issues he has experienced.

"But unfortunately I'm still unable to compete". "I've said in the past, years ago, he just would have continued to play through all of this".

Hideki Matsuyama (No. 30) and Phil Mickelson (No. 34) join Woods at risk of missing the Tour Championship with a poor showing in the first leg of the playoffs. At the PGA Championship, he played only nine holes of practice in cold weather at Bethpage Black, where he missed the cut.

Woods has played a very limited schedule since he won the Masters, with this only his fifth start since that victory in April.

The Northern Trust marks the beginning of the PGA Tour's 2019 FedEx Cup playoffs, meaning most of the biggest names in golf are in action this week.
