A leg injury forced Tiger Woods to withdraw from the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, leaving his participation in the April’s Masters at Augusta in question.

“I felt tightness in my left Achilles when I warmed up this morning and it got progressively worse during the day,” Woods said in a statement. “After hitting my tee shot at 12, I decided it was necessary to withdraw. … In the past, I may have tried to continue to play, but this time, I decided to do what I thought was necessary.”

“I’ll get my Achilles evaluated sometime early next week,” he added.

While the golf celeb is also scheduled to participate in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida later this month, that is also in question, according to CNN.

Woods also took time away last year to recover from a similar injury. – Stephanie Long
