Tiger Woods has pulled out of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida due to a neck strain.

Woods added that he would send his regrets for missing one of his favorite tournaments, at Bay Hill Club & Lodge, to Palmer's family. "It's connection to Arnold makes it one of my favourite tournaments and I'm disappointed to miss it".

Woods last month finished tied for 10th at his previous tournament, the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Tiger Woods last played in the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship on February 24 in Mexico City. The black tape, used by Tom Brady when he cut his hand before Super Bowl LII previous year, created a buzz in the golf world when it appeared on the nape of Woods's neck, with the company's chief marketing officer telling last summer that the tape's primary function was to give Woods "drug-free pain relief and support".

There are a lot of questions here - most best saved for another day - but it is worth questioning why Woods played at Riviera and Mexico if he had the strain.
