PALM BEACH GARDENS---Tiger
Woods withdrew from the Honda
Classic on the 13th hole yesterday,
claiming a lower back injury with
Woods was 5-over for the final
round, 13 shots behind Rory McIl-
roy, when he shook hands with
Luke Guthrie on the 13th green.
The tournament sent a van to col-
lect Woods and his family, and
police kept media from the parking
lot.Woods said through spokesman
Glenn Greenspan it was lower back
problems that started Sunday
morning as he was warming up.
He was to defend his title next
week in the Cadillac Champi-
Woods already has played a lim-
ited schedule this year---11 rounds
at portions of four tournaments.
He was to play twice more before
the Masters on April 10-13.
Woods said the spasms were
similar to what he felt last August
at The Barclays, where he dropped
to his knees after hitting one shot.
Woods finished that tournament
in a tie for second, one shot behind
It was the second time in two
years that Woods has walked off
the course in the middle of the
final round. He quit after 11 holes
at Doral when he was well out of
contention---and then won Bay Hill
two weeks later for his first PGA
Tour title since his return from the
chaos in his personal life.
Woods had said earlier this year
in Dubai that he spent the majority
of his offseason working on his
physical strength, at the expense
of neglecting his game. He opened
the year by missing the 54-hole
cut at Torrey Pines (where he was
an eight-time winner), and then
tying for 41st in the Dubai Desert
Two years ago at Doral, Woods
was driven in a cart to the parking
lot, and NBC Sports showed
footage of his Mercedes-Benz driv-
ing out of the Miami resort toward
his home about an hour north in
Jupiter. This time, police blocked
the media from entering the play-
ers parking lot. Woods was seen
getting out of a white passenger
van with his mother and other
members of his group.
It was the second time the No.
1 player in the world walked out
in the middle of the Honda Classic.
A year ago, Rory McIlroy quit after
26 holes because of what he said
was a sore wisdom tooth. He later
said the frustration of a poor start
to the year got the best of him.
