Tiger Woods announces break from golf, says current game 'unacceptable'

  • Golfing legend Tiger Woods has announced an indefinite break from the sport, saying his current game was “unacceptable for tournament play”.

    The 39-year-old withdrew after an injury from Torrey Pines last week after only 12 holes. Before this, he could not make it to the Phoenix Open.

    Woods, whose form has been quite poor lately, said his game needed “a lot of work” and he would be back “when I think I'm ready”.

    His participation in this month’s Honda Classic is now in doubt.
