Woods to Skip Match Play 2/6/14
JUPITER, Fla. — Tiger Woods will not compete in the Match Play Championship in Arizona in two weeks. It's the first time he's missed the event when healthy and the tournament is held in the U.S.
Woods originally planned to attend the Sochi Olympics before his girlfriend and champion skier Lindsey Vonn got injured.
Instead, he will stay home and prepare for three tournaments in Florida. He'll next play the Honda Classic on Feb. 27 followed by title defenses at Doral and Bay Hill.
This means the Match Play will be without three of the top players in the world -- Woods, Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott.
