Tiger Woods withdraws from Safeway tournament

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from this week’s Safeway Open tournament, again delaying his comeback after 14 months out following back surgery.

Woods announced on his website on Monday (10 October) that his game was not sharp enough for him to compete in the PGA Tour event that starts in Napa, California, on Thursday 13 October.

“Tiger Woods has pulled out of the Safeway Open and we’re very sorry to hear this news. We certainly hope that everything is OK with Tiger and we really don’t know any more than that right now, but we do know that he has officially pulled out of the tournament,” tournament Executive Director Jeff Sanders told Reuters Television.

The 14-times major champion also will not play in the European Tour’s Turkish Airlines Open in November, when he was due to make his second start on the comeback trail.

“After a lot of soul-searching and honest reflection, I know that I am not yet ready to play on the PGA Tour or compete in Turkey,” Ryder Cup vice-captain Woods tweeted.

“Ryder Cup inspired me to play my best. Unfortunately as I prepared , I still need work and refining,” he wrote.

Woods, aged 40, said the comeback delay was not due to back-related issues.
