Tiger Woods is pulling out of his own golf tournament this weekend because of “injuries sustained in a one-car accident last week.” This is obviously bad news for NBC, which is televising the event.
From Tiger’s site:
“I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week,” Woods said. “I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.”
“We support Tiger’s decision and are confident the strong field and excellent course will provide an exciting week of competition at the Chevron World Challenge, said Greg McLaughlin, Tiger Woods Foundation President & CEO
Woods will not participate in any other tournaments in 2009 and will return to action next year.
