Recently, BTC PGA National confirmed that this tournament will not have the participation of Tiger Woods because he is in the process of being treated for back pain.
“I am currently receiving professional help to manage medications for my back pain and sleep disorders,” Tiger Woods shared on his personal Twitter earlier this week.
Previously, Tiger Wood was criticized by the public for being arrested at 3 am on May 29 in Jupiter (Florida, USA) for driving a car in a state of loss of control.
According to the report, the American golfer was found asleep at the wheel of a Mercedes on the right side of the road, the engine running, the right turn signal on and the brake light on. Both tires on the driver’s side are weak and the car shows signs of minor damage on the left side. Woods’ breath alcohol test showed 0%.
After completing the bail procedures and paying the fine, the golf legend was allowed to be released.
“I want everyone to know that this has nothing to do with drinking. It’s all a side effect of the medications I’m taking. I sincerely apologize to my family, friends and loved ones. fans,” Woods explained the incident.
It is known that Woods has only appeared at the PGA National twice since 2012 because of an abusive injury. In mid-April, Tiger Woods revealed that he had just returned to the operating table to treat tormenting pain in his back and legs.
This was the 41-year-old golfer’s third surgery in a row in just 19 months. Woods had two back surgeries in 2015 and ended a 15-month hiatus when he competed in the Hero World Challenge last December.
He was then forced to withdraw from the second round of the Dubai Desert Classic in February because of a recurrence of a back injury. Most recently, the American golfer also announced not to join the Master for the same reason.
