Tiger reclaimed world No. 1 with his victory at the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational.
TIGER WOODS ANNOUNCED THAT HE WILL SKIP the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a tournament he has won eight times, including in 2013. "I will continue to work hard preparing for Augusta," Tiger said.
His full statement from TigerWoods.com:
I spoke to Arnold today and told him that I will not play in his tournament this year. I'm sorry I won't be in Orlando next week, but I know it will be a really successful event.
I've put in a lot of time and work on my game and I'm making strides, but like I've said, I won't return to the PGA TOUR until my game is tournament ready and I can compete at the highest level.
I hope to be ready for the Masters, and I will continue to work hard preparing for Augusta.
I want to thank everyone again for their support.
