Woods Withdraws from Farmers Insurance Open
(SAN DIEGO) — Tiger Woods withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Thursday due to a back injury.
Woods played 11 holes but had to quit after making it to the green on the 12th hole.
Woods dealt with back problems all of last year.
During Thursday’s tourney, he said his back started to tighten up on him after having to wait out a fog delay that caused him to start his round more than two hours past his scheduled tee time.
“It’s frustrating that it started shutting down like that,” Woods said. “I was ready to go. I had a good warm-up session the first time around. Then we stood out here and I got cold, and everything started deactivating again. And it’s frustrating that I just can’t stay activated. That’s just kind of the way it is.”
Woods finishes two over for the day. It’s the third time in his last nine tournaments that Woods has had to withdraw due to a back injury.
