Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas this week, a tournament hosted by the TGR Foundation, after developing plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is a common issue in the foot that can cause pain in the heel and the sole of the foot. Woods told his fans on social media that he pulled out after consulting his doctors and trainers.
Woods suddenly had an incredibly busy December lined up. As previously stated, he still intends on playing in The Match with Rory McIlroy against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at Pelican Golf Club on December 10.
The PNC Championship, in which he came second with his talented son Charlie in 2021, begins on December 15. The pair committed to the family-orientated competition on November 25.
"We have been looking forward to this week all year and we can’t wait to team up together for our third PNC Championship," Woods said.
"This is such a special opportunity as a dad to get to compete with my son against so many golfing greats and their family members. It is going to be a very special week and I know that Charlie and I will have a blast."
Viktor Hovland won the event in 2021. Woods has also won this event on five occasions, most recently in 2011 when it was called the Chevron World Challenge.
Woods managed to play four rounds at The Masters back in April, but he withdrew from the USPGA Championship to protect his injured right leg and he missed the cut at The 150th Open Championship in July.
Austria's Sepp Straka has been named as Woods' replacement in this week's field.
