Tiger Woods pulls out of Safeway Open return
Tiger Woods will not return to the PGA Tour this week.
Woods, who revealed his game felt “vunerable”, released his decision to withdraw through a statement on his official website.
“I know that I am not yet ready to play on the PGA Tour or compete in Turkey,” revealed Woods.
“My health is good, and I feel strong, but my game is vulnerable and not where it needs to be.
“I’m close and I won’t stop until I get there.”
The 14-time Major champion met a deadline and officially committed to play in the Safeway Open, staged at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California.
But, following a late decision n Monday it now means that the American won’t have teed it up in anger since a top 10 finish at the Wyndham Championship in August 2015.
Ryder Cup inspired me to play my best. Unfortunately as I prepared, I still need work and refining. https://t.co/wCFjIznK6R
