Arnold Palmer Invitational: Masters doubt for Tiger Woods with back injury.

The 14-time major winner is a doubt for the Masters after pulling out of next week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Wood, 41, said, “He has “no timetable” for his return.

Tiger Woods, 41, has been suffering with back problems and has not played since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic on 3 February.

The 41-year-old golf star has won the Masters four times and the first major of the season begins at Augusta on 6 April.

Tiger Woods said, “I’m especially disappointed because I wanted to help honour Arnold.”

“This is one event I didn’t want to skip. Arnold has meant so much to me and my family; I thought of him as a close friend. He will be greatly missed and can never truly be replaced.”

Arnold Palmer, who won seven majors, died last September at the age of 87.

Tiger Woods who last played in the event at Bay Hill in Orlando in 2013 has won it a record eight times. No other player has won it more than twice.
