No surprise: Tiger Woods won’t be attending WGC event at Concession


The field for the first world golf championship of the year will not include Tiger Woods, although that comes as no huge surprise given his silence since his fifth back surgery.

Woods narrowly qualified for next week’s WGC-Workday Championship remaining in the top 50 of the world rankings (he is 48e) but chose not to play the event which would be about a three-hour drive from his South Florida home.

Woods – who is a seven-time winner of the World Golf Championship which was played in Miami, Mexico City and now Bradenton, Fla. – skipped this week’s Farmers Insurance Open and Genesis Invitational, which benefits his founding, and n he hasn’t played an official PGA Tour event since the Masters in November.

This year’s WGC-Workday Championship will mark the first time the event will be played without Woods or Phil Mickelson, who did not qualify for the event, on the field since the inception of World Events in 1999.
