Former world number one Tiger Woods withdrew from this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational on Monday after failing to shake off a neck strain. The tournament wraps up Sunday.

Woods, ranked 12th, cited a neck strain he said he's had for a few weeks, adding he had no "long-term concerns".

"I've been receiving treatment but it hasn't improved enough to play", said the 43-year-old American.

Tata Motors denies reports of JLR stake sale

He also sent his regrets to the Palmer family for having to miss this year's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

His eight victories at the PGA Tour event is a record, shared with Sam Snead, for most wins at a single event.

The 80-time PGA TOUR victor said his fused lower back is fine and he is hopeful of playing next week in THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass where he is a two-time champion. The 14-time major victor finished tied for 10th at the 2019 World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship on February 24 in Mexico City. Woods tied for 11th at The Players in 2018. If Woods is able to play in next week's Players Championship (and he is sure to do everything he can to play), then that leaves only two more realistic tournaments to play before the Masters in early April. Woods finished tied for second at the Valspar a year ago, and it seems as if he would come back if he could.
