Tiger Woods does not start in the Players Championship

Golf star Tiger Woods will not start next week’s Players Championship. The US tour published the list of participants for the so-called fifth major tournament on Friday – but the name of the two-time winner Woods was missing.

The 15-time major champion celebrated his comeback in Los Angeles in mid-February and finished 45th there. He then said: “It was a bit more difficult than I thought.”

Woods said of his future plans: “I would like to play all four majors and a few other tournaments. My body does not allow more.”

Woods sustained a serious leg injury in a self-inflicted car accident in February 2021. The consequences can still be felt, and despite several operations he complains of persistent back problems.
