Tiger Woods withdraws from WGC-Cadillac Championship

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the World Golf Championship-Cadillac Championship at Doral after playing 11 holes in the final round.

Woods, who was +3 on the day changed his shoes at the turn from black Nikes, to the white Nikes, we have seen him wear since returning to golf full time after injuring his left knee at the 2011 Masters.

Beginning the day at 9-under par at Doral, Woods carded no birdies, eight pars and two bogeys before withdrawing after 11 holes.

After changing shoes at the turn. Woods was visibly limping and favoring his left side. The same side his knee injury was on last season.

Though it is very obvious it has something to do with either his left knee or perhaps left foot. As he was seen removing his shoes as he was being carted to the parking area to leave the event site.

"Leg," said Woods as he left the grounds at Doral. "Left leg."

Although earlier in the week he was quoted as saying, "Oh, it feels great." When asked about how his left leg and body were holding up.

This could be from the effects that four knee surgeries Woods' has hod over his career. Or, just another occurrence that he is in fact perhaps, not at 100% as he said he was.

His immediate future schedule would have him at Bay Hill in two weeks time. With the Masters a mere and obviously shorter for Woods now, in four weeks.

Woods released this statement through his representative, " I felt tightness in my left Achilles when I was warming up this morning. And it got progressively worse throughout the day."

"After hitting the tee shot at 12, I decided to withdraw. In the past, I might have continued to play, but this time I decided to what I thought was necessary."

"I plan to get my Achilles evaluated early next week."

Woods went on to thank the sponsors of the event and the fans at Doral for their support this week.
