Tiger Woods will miss next week’s Players Championship after suffering back problems.
Woods has not played since the Genesis Open three weeks ago where he came 68th and missed this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, citing back stiffness.
American Woods is a two-time winner of the Players Championship, one of the biggest events outside the Majors.
The Masters begins on 9 April where Woods, 44, will hope to defend the title he won for a fifth time in 2019.
