Tiger Woods Withdraws From WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

Sun, 03 Aug 2014 22:53:00 +0000

Scott Halleran/Getty Images(AKRON, Ohio) -- Tiger Woods withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after he grimaced in pain following a tee shot on the ninth hole on Sunday.

Woods was tied for 36th entering the day and left in a tremendous amount of pain, according to ESPN golf insider Bob Harig.

"It happened on the second hole when I hit my second shot," Woods said. "I fell back into the bunker. I just jarred it, and it's been spasming ever since.''

Woods had back surgery on March 31.  He was 4-over after eight holes.

"It's just the whole lower back," Woods said of where the pain was located. "I don't know what happened."
