PGA Tour Golfer Jason Day explains why Tiger Woods has pulled out of the 2022 PGA Championship.
Woods, who had to leave Gentlemen After reinvigorating his plantar fasciitis, he told the media that he was sick, which is why he was out. However, he told a different story for the day.
“I was talking to him at the end of last year, and he was saying that the reason he was out of the PGA was that it went through his skin on Saturday or whatever it was.” There is a day, through New York Post.

“I don’t know how bad it is at this point … It’s a shame he’s not playing here.”
In that tournament, a third-round 79 from Woods was uncharacteristic considering he hasn’t played much during the 2022 PGA Tour. After it was finished, he retired.
“I’m hurt. I know that’s true,” Woods said at the time.

But it was far worse than Woods let on.
Woods has been dealing with a sore right leg that will require surgery after a horrific car accident in February 2021, and there was one noticeable bruise from Woods that was spotted last week at Augusta National Golf Club.
Following the less-than-ideal weather conditions following the first round of the Masters, Woods had to contend with rain and cold weather, which didn’t help the pain he was dealing with.
On Saturday, Woods was clearly in pain when he teed off on the 17th hole while trying to finish the second round. Day noted that he saw Woods “working very hard” at the time, so it was no surprise that he backed off.
“It was hard to watch because he had to come back out and play yesterday morning and then he had to take some time off and come back and play again.”

“Thank you to the fans and @TheMasters for all the love and support,” Woods wrote on Twitter after he retired.
It’s unclear when Woods will return to the golf course, especially after having to leave this week. If the trend continues, Woods will try to play in the majors, so the PGA Championship will be next on the schedule.
