No March events for Tiger Woods: why He will not participate in Valspar Championship

He wasn’t included in the field list

Tiger Woods has opted out of another golfing event despite his previous commitment to play one tournament per month. Despite expressing hopes of maintaining such a schedule, Woods has chosen to sit out of the Valspar Championship, marking the end of any chance to see him on the greens in March.

The PGA Tour‘s announcement of the Valspar Championship field came and went without Woods signing up before the entry deadline. This decision eliminates his last realistic opportunity to prepare for the upcoming Masters tournamen

Woods has a limited history with the Valspar Championship, having participated only once in 2018, where he finished tied for second place. The following tournaments after Valspar, the Houston Open and the Valero Texas Open, also appear to be absent from Woods’ schedule, with his participation in the latter event dating back to 1996.

Woods’ back issues

While Woods recently participated in the Seminole Pro-Member event, finishing T44, questions linger regarding his physical condition, particularly concerning his back, as he had hinted at back issues during the Genesis Invitational. Woods admitted his back was not at 100 percent during the Riviera event, further suggesting ongoing physical challenges.

“My back spasmed on it,” he noted.

“It had been spasming over the last three holes, and it just locked up on me and didn’t move, didn’t rotate.”

Despite speculation about potential appearances at the Arnold Palmer Invitational or THE PLAYERS Championship, Woods has yet to confirm participation in any upcoming events.

Reports suggest that Woods might meet with PIF officials at the PGA Tour headquarters, hinting at potential discussions about his future involvement in golfing events.
