He made it sound like a minor thing that will pass, but he nonetheless sent a shiver through the golf community with his decision to skip this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, a tournament he has won eight times.

Woods announced his decision Monday on Twitter.

The Northern Irishman was speaking to the press ahead of this weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational, from which Woods has withdrawn due to neck strain. Woods says he's had the neck strain for a few weeks and it hasn't improved with treatment to the point he feels he can play.

The Players Championship will start on March 14th, and now, bookmakers are yet to change any odds after Woods injury.

The 14-time major victor finished tied for 10th at the 2019 World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship on February 24 in Mexico City.

Now we have two top-20 players on injury watch for next week's man event with Day and his back and Tiger Woods and a balky neck. "It's connection to Arnold makes it one of my favourite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it".

While the injury does appear to be anything serious it could garner more attention if he finds himself unable to tee it up at TPC Sawgrass next week for the PGA Tour's flagship event, which is widely regarded as the unofficial fifth major. Woods is a two-time victor of the tournament, with his last title coming in 2013. Beyond that, the Masters is fast approaching and Woods, so far, has played in only three tournaments.
