Tiger Woods to take an indefinite break from golf

Tiger labels recent performances as unacceptable

Tiger Woods has announced he is taking an indefinite break from the game of golf labelling his recent performances as “unacceptable”.

The former world number one made his comeback from a back injury at the Waste Management Phoenix Open last month but cadres his worst-ever professional round, an 11 over 82, on his way to missing the cut.

The following week he was forced to retire from the Farmers Insurance Open after just 11 holes of his opening round after suffering yet more back trouble.

And now the 14-time major winner has decided to take a break from the sport in a bid to try and become competitive again but hopes to be back soon.
My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf" – Tiger Woods “This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day,” he posted on his official website.

“Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. 

“My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I’ve said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I’m ready, I’ll be back. 

“Next week I will practice at Medalist and at home getting ready for the rest of the year. 

“I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game. I’d like to play The Honda Classic — it’s a tournament in my hometown and it’s important to me — but I won’t be there unless my game is tournament-ready. 

“That’s not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon.”
