DORAL, Fla. — Tiger Woods withdrew from the WGC-Cadillac Championship after 11 holes at TPC Blue Monster Sunday.
Woods began noticeably limping on the front-nine of his final round. The limp, which favored his left leg, became progressively worse on each hole.
After finishing the par-4 11th hole, Woods blasted a drive 321 yards to the left side of the 12th hole fairway. It was Woods’ last shot. After the drive, Woods summoned a golf cart that took him to the player’s parking lot. He walked off the cart and sat down in the driver’s seat in a black Mercedes.
A medical cart drove up to the car, and moments later Woods drove the Mercedes away from the resort.
Woods was 3-over for the day and 6-under for the tournament before withdrawing.
Woods has had four surgeries on his left knee, and he missed nearly four months of last season with another left-knee injury that did not require surgery.
