TULSA, Okla. — There will be no Sunday red for Tiger Woods in the PGA Championship.
The PGA of America said Woods has withdrawn. Woods had a career-high 79 in the third round Saturday at Southern Hills. He limped his way around in the cold and wind, at one point making five straight bogeys.
This is the first time Woods has withdrew from a major as a professional.
He declined interviews after his round, speaking only to a pool reporter. Woods was asked if he felt as though he would play the final round. All he said was he was sore, he would do some work and see how it went.
Woods has made the cut in the two majors he has played since his right leg was battered in a car crash 15 months ago.
Statement from PGA of America President Jim Richerson:
“Tiger Woods has informed us that he is withdrawing from the 2022 PGA Championship. We admire Tiger’s valiant effort to compete here at Southern Hills and wish him the best as he continues to recover from his injuries.”
