Tiger Woods slices Chevron World Challenge from plans

SHARE Tiger Woods slices Chevron World Challenge from plans

In a move slightly less surprising than the firing of Charlie Weis, Tiger Woods apparently will not play in the event that benefits his own charity for the second straight year.

Last year, Tiger skipped the Chevron World Challenge, which benefits the world’s No. 1 golfer’s Tiger Woods Foundation, after knee surgery. This year it’s car trouble that has Woods sitting on the sideline.

In addition to the ongoing swirl of mystery around his Friday morning game of pinball in an Escalade with wife Elin, a fire hydrant and a tree, Woods is apparently having some headaches and soreness that his doctors advise should keep him grounded, reports The Golf Channel.

No official word from Woods’ people. Yet.

UPDATE, 2:15 p.m.: Statement from Woods confirms he’ll miss his tourney:

I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week, Woods said of the Chevron World Challenge in California. I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.

Apparently he mistook it for an interview with police.
