Tiger Drops Out of Bay Hill

Tiger  Woods  announced Tuesday he  will not be able  defend his title at this 
week's  Arnold Palmer  Invitational because of back spasms and said it was too 
early  to  know if  he'd be ready  for the Masters  next month. Woods withdrew 
during  the final round  of the Honda Classic three weeks ago due to the issue 
in  his back  and was scheduled to return  to action Thursday at Bay Hill at a 
tournament  he  has won eight  times. But the reigning  PGA Tour Player of the 
Year  said  on his website  the spasms and pain  in his back haven't subsided. 
Woods  has made  just four starts worldwide during this current season and has 
not finished better than a tie for 25th place at the WGC-Cadillac Championship 
two  weeks ago.  He failed to make  the secondary cut at the Farmers Insurance 
Open  and  tied for 41st  at the Dubai Desert  Classic, a European Tour event, 
before  withdrawing from the Honda Classic. Woods captured his second straight 
Bay  Hill  title last  year, becoming only  the second player  to win the same 
event  eight times  after Sam  Snead, who  won eight  Greater Greensboro  Open 
titles.
