Tiger Woods back injury forces him out of event
The back injury that plagued Tiger Woods throughout last week's FedEx Cup opener at The Barclays could put paid to his plans for this week's event at TPC Boston, after it was announced he is pulling out of a charity event this week.

The Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge, hosted by Woods's friend and former college teammate Notah Begay, told media on Tuesday that the 14-time major winner would not be taking the field in today's event at Turning Stone Resort.

"While we're disappointed Tiger is unable to play in this year's event, the important thing for Tiger is to make sure he's 100 percent healthy and not risk further injuring himself," Begay said.

Woods complained of stiffness due to a soft bed in his hotel at the beginning of The Barclays but it was exacerbated dramatically on his back nine on Sunday. The 14-time major winner stunned onlookers by dropping to his knees in pain following a shot on the 13th.

Although Woods managed to rally, and was just one shot of forcing a playoff with eventual winner Adam Scott, it seems the exertion has taken its toll.

Directly after the event concluded, the iconic golfer told media he was unsure whether he would be able to compete in forthcoming events, saying he was "not feeling my best right now."
