Tiger Woods out of Hero World Challenge with plantar fasciitis

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from this week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot, he announced on Twitter Monday.

The tournament, which benefits Woods’ charity TGR Foundation, should be his first start since missing the cut at the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews in July.

“In preparation and training for this week’s Hero World Challenge, I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot which is making it difficult to walk,” Woods wrote in an opinion. “After consulting my doctors and coaches, I have decided to retire this week and focus on my duties as a host. My plan is still to compete in The Match and the PNC Championship.”

Woods, 46, competed in just nine rounds in three majors last season, his first starts since he was seriously injured in a car accident outside of Los Angeles in February 2021. He finished 47th at the Masters in April and retired after 54 holes at the PGA Championship in May.

Woods, a 15-time major champion, will play in The Match on December 10th at Pelican Golf Club outside of Tampa, Florida. He will team up with world No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy in a 12-hole match against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas under the lights. Woods will also play with his son Charlie at the PNC Championships in Orlando, Florida on December 17th and 18th.

Sepp Straka replaces Woods in the 20-man field.
