The Return Of Tiger Woods Sees Early End, Pulls Out Of Genesis Invitational In 2nd Round

The Return Of Tiger Woods Sees Early End, Pulls Out Of Genesis Invitational In 2nd Round 

Tiger Woods’ comeback ends early as he pulls out of Genesis Invitational. Woods complained of illness after six holes of second round.

Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour comeback ended prematurely after he pulled out of the Genesis Invitational in California during his second round.

Jordan Spieth of the United States tees off the second hole during the second round of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club on Friday. The 48-year-old is still adapting to ankle fusion surgery, having undergone treatment in April last year after withdrawing from the Masters during the third round and he did not compete again until the Hero World Challenge in December.

The 15-times major champion, who is the tournament host this week, finished Thursday’s opening round at the Riviera Country Club on one over par. But the American could not back that up a day later as he withdrew after six holes due to illness.

Woods started in fine form, producing a birdie on the first, but back-to-back bogeys arrived from the fourth and he called it a day after a third par of the day on the sixth left him one over for his round.

Rob McNamara, his longtime associate and vice president of TGR Ventures, said Woods felt flu symptoms Thursday night that worsened when he woke up.

“He had a little bit of a fever and was better during the warm-up, but then when he got out there and was walking and playing, he started feeling dizzy,” McNamara told a PGA Tour official. “Ultimately, the doctors are saying he’s got potentially some type of flu and that he was dehydrated. He’s been treated with an IV bag and he’s doing much, much better, and he’ll be released on his own here soon.”

Woods left Riviera about two hours after he withdrew, sitting in the front seat of a red SUV as it departed.
