Tiger Woods pulled out of Monday’s Hero World Challenge because he has plantar fasciitis.
Woods was expected to appear at the Bahamas event which he co-founded. Woods stated that he was planning to compete in The Match and The PNC Championship next month.
Woods released a statement saying that she developed plantar fasciitis while preparing for the Hero World Challenge. “This is making it difficult for me to walk and prepare for the Hero World Challenge.” After consulting my trainers and doctors, I decided to withdraw from the Hero World Challenge this week and concentrate on my hosting duties. I will still be competing in The Match and PNC Championship.
Woods last played in the British Open in July. He announced earlier this month that Woods has joined the field.
Woods and his father founded the Hero World Challenge. It will be held in Albany, Bahamas from Dec. 1 through 4.
The field will include Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm as well as Justin Thomas, the returning champion, and Viktor Hovland.
Woods will likely be participating in The Match With Rory McIlroy as well as the PNC Championship together with his son Charlie. Woods is currently recovering from injuries and the fallout of his February 2021 accident.
