Tiger Woods suffers foot injury, out of Hero World Challenge


Tiger Woods has dropped out of this week’s Hero World Challenge due to injury.

Woods, who serves as host for the exhibition event, announced Monday that he has developed plantar fasciitis in his right foot. “After consulting with my doctors and trainers, I have decided to withdraw this week and focus on my hosting duties,” Woods said in a statement.

Despite the ailment, Woods said he still plans on competing in the latest installment of “The Match” with Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth on Dec. 10, along with playing with his son Charlie at the PNC Championship the following week.

The Hero was supposed to mark Woods’ first return to competition since his possible goodbye to St. Andrews at this year’s Open Championship. Woods, 46, played nine rounds in 2022, highlighted by making the weekend at both the Masters and PGA Championship.

Seventeen of the top 21 players in the world will attend Woods’ charity event in the Bahamas. That group includes defending Hero champion Viktor Hovland, World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, Thomas and Spieth. Will Zalatoris, who has been sidelined with injury since the BMW Championship, is listed as a participant.
