Tiger Woods Explains Why He's Withdrawing From Arnold Palmer Invitational

Tiger Woods last played in the World Golf Championships Mexico Championship on Feb. 24 in Mexico City

Two-time Players champion Tiger Woods is expected to return to action, having missed the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a neck injury, while Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy will be among the players bidding to become the first British victor since Sandy Lyle in 1987.

"Unfortunately due to a neck strain that I've had for a few weeks, I'm forced to withdraw from the API", Woods posted. "I've been receiving treatment, but it hasn't improved enough to play", Woods said.

He says his lower back is fine and he has no concerns over the long run.

His three-putt at the next, where he missed a five-footer, was not quite as dramatic but hardly less disappointing for one of the greatest talents to have played the game.

Furthermore, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that teams have been told a deal is expected to be in place by Friday, March 8. The Steelers already have made it clear that they would rather not send him to an AFC North team or the Patriots.

A week later, he played in the WGC Mexico Championship and finished tied for 10th.

Woods' eight victories at the PGA Tour event at Bay Hille is a record, shared with Sam Snead, for most wins at a single event. 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. Three weeks ago, at the Genesis Open at Riviera - a tournament he hosts - Woods finished tied for 15th.

Woods, 43, is coming off a bounce-back season after years of health problems that included spinal fusion surgery.
