Although the pro golfer battled through the weekend after hitting one shot, the wet and cold conditions took a toll on him as he began his third round, ending up at the bottom of the leaderboard at +9.

Tiger Woods bows out of Masters due to injury
Woods continues to face challenges in his golf career after he was seen limping in the final rounds of Saturday’s match before play was suspended due to weather conditions. Sunday via The Masters’ official Twitter page announced:
“Due to injury, @TigerWoods has officially withdrawn from the Masters Tournament after completing seven holes in his third round.”
The World Golf Hall of Fame inductee followed up his own announcement by telling his 6.6 million followers that he was “disappointed” with the to retreat “this morning due to aggravation of my plantar fasciitis.”
The support of the 47-year-old athlete was felt immediately, thousands of people liked and forwarded the message. in response, “Get some rest, champion! Get well soon and thanks for being the legend. They pushed me to be the best I could be. I hope to see you again soon on the course!”
A second fan he applauded Woods for his “commitment to the sport” and a third claimed that while the rest of the game wouldn’t be the same without him, his health was more important. The fourth supporter called the 10-time PGA Tour leading money winner, the best golfer ever,” he concludes, wishing a speedy recovery.
Amid the public display of love for the beloved athlete, it is worth noting that Grace Charis did not send her well wishes. The OnlyFans model became the talk of the town after posting a picture last week of her interest in caddying at Woods.
Charis, who has gained rep for golfing braless, added a golf club and a green face cap to her outfit, according to The Blast.. As expected, the comments section of the Instagram post was filled with jokes about the Vardon Trophy winner’s past indiscretions during his marriage to Elin Nordegren.
The father-of-two was accused – and admitted – of cheating on his wife with several women, including nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel. “Easy hole in one a Tiger,” joked one Instagram user, while another added: “There’s nothing Tiger likes better.”
The post has been liked more than 120,000 times since it was shared six days ago.
The FedEx Cup champion was praised by his daughter for staying strong
It’s been over a year since The Blast reported the moment Woods was inducted into the World Golf Hall Of Fame after a tumultuous career. He attended the event, broadcast on the Golf Channel, with his mother, Kultida, his longtime girlfriend, Erica Herman, and his children, daughter Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel.
The event was held prior to the Players Championship at the Florida museum, where Sam had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to introduce his father as the honorary recipient of the highly sought-after title. The 14-year-old touched her father’s resilience when he suffered a traumatic accident during one of his low periods. In his words:
“We didn’t know if you’d come home with two legs or not.” Now you’re not just about to enter the Hall of Fame, you’re standing on your own two feet. That’s why you deserve this. You are a warrior. You defied the odds every time.”
The accident in question was a car accident in February 2022 where he suffered an open fracture of the tibia and fibula of his right leg. After several months of intensive rehabilitation, he began to move in bed rest, with a wheelchair and then with crutches. Shortly after the accident, Woods spoke about the future of golf, stating:
“I think it’s realistic to play the tour once – never again full-time, never again – but choose to do it like Mr. (Ben) Hogan did.”
The incident also made him realize that he can enjoy his life to the fullest without participating in races and competitions.
