Tiger Woods has annouced via Twitter that he will not be playing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
In a tweet, Woods says unfortunately due to a neck strain that he's had for "a few weeks," he's been forced to withdraw
He goes on to say he has been receiving treatment but his condition hasn't improved enough to play, he has no long-term concerns, and hopes to be ready for the Players Championship which takes place March 14-17.
1) Unfortunately due to a neck strain that I’ve had for a few weeks, I'm forced to withdraw from the API. I’ve been receiving treatment, but it hasn't improved enough to play. My lower back is fine, and I have no long-term concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) March 4, 2019
2) I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans. Its connection to Arnold makes it one of my favorite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) March 4, 2019
