American golfer Tiger Woods has withdrawn from The Masters 2023 after making the cut for the third and fourth rounds in Augusta. The five-time Masters champion was seen yesterday battling bad weather at the course but struggled during his round and seemed to be in pain falling to nine under par as he scrapped through to make the cut.

Woods made two bogeys and two double-bogeys in his first seven holes and hence was placed at bottom of the leaderboard by three shots. The Masters official Twitter account released a statement regarding Tiger Woods’ withdrawal from the tournament and cited injury as a reason behind this decision. 

The statement said, Due to injury, “@TigerWoods has officially withdrawn from the Masters Tournament after completing seven holes of his third round. #themasters.” Check out the tweet here:

Tiger Woods also released a statement regarding his withdrawal and expressed that while playing he reaggravated his plantar fasciitis. Woods posted it on Twitter and said, “I am disappointed to have to WD this morning due to reaggravating my plantar fasciitis. Thank you to the fans and to @TheMasters who have shown me so much love and support. Good luck to the players today!”

Going back to the tournament, the second round of The Masters was suspended on Friday because of bad weather as three trees fell near spectators at Augusta National Golf Club.  The organisers stated that no one was injured after the trees fell due to the wind. Brooks Koepka is currently on to with a four-shot lead over Jon Rahm.
