Tiger Woods withdraws from Hero World Challenge with foot injury

News

Tiger Woods will miss this week’s Hero World Challenge due to a foot injury but hasn’t ruled out his other competitions in December.

Woods said in a statement that he had “developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot, which is making it difficult to walk.” He added that he will still be able to handle his hosting duties and that he plans to still compete in The Match and PNC Championship in the coming weeks.

Woods has not competed since The Open in July and has been selective of his tournaments since his leg was badly damaged in a car accident in 2021.

His next chance to compete will be in The Match on Dec. 10 when he will partner with Rory McIlroy to take on Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Fla. The week after that, he and his son Charlie will play the two-day PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, competing against other pros and their family members.

“We have been looking forward to this week all year,” Woods said of the chance to play the PNC Championship. “This is such a special opportunity as a dad to get to compete with my son against so many golfing greats and their family members. It is going to be a very special week and I know that Charlie and I will have a blast.”

The Hero World’s Challenge, hosted by Woods this year at Albany Golf Club in The Bahamas, is a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.
