Tiger Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer Invitational because of back pain

Tiger Woods pulled out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational late Tuesday afternoon because of his ongoing back pain. Here is the complete report from Associated Press Golf Writer Doug Ferguson:

Tiger Woods withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Tuesday because of persistent pain in his back, creating even more uncertainty for golf’s No. 1 player with the Masters only three weeks away.

And that’s if Woods can even play in the Masters.

“I personally called Arnold today to tell him that, sadly, I won’t be able to play in his tournament this year,” Woods said on his website. “I would like to express my regrets to the Orlando fans, the volunteers, the tournament staff and the sponsors for having to miss the event. Unfortunately, my back spasms and the pain haven’t subsided.”

Jason Day’s thumb still too sore for him to play at Bay Hill

Jason Day has withdrawn from this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational because his injured left thumb is still too sore to play.

The 26-year-old Australian hurt it during the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, which he went on to win – the victory was the biggest of his career and vaulted him up to a career-high No. 4 in the world. He skipped the Honda Classic and had planned to play at the Cadillac Championship at Doral, but it was still problematic.

Day had an MRI in Miami on the Wednesday of the Cadillac Championship that was negative, but the doctor prescribed rest.
