LOS ANGELES, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods skipped his hometown tournament for the first time in 2002 to recover from remnants of a virus. That prompted a Los Angeles Times columnist to ask an annoying question to players at Riviera.
Why would anyone come out to watch if Tiger isn’t playing?
Among the victims that day were defending champion Robert Allenby (“Then don’t come — go home”) and two-time Riviera champion Fred Couples (“That’s crazy. That’s the most ridiculous question I have ever heard”).
The irritation was understandable.

LOS ANGELES, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Back spasms not only kept Tiger Woods from playing at Riviera, they forced him to withdraw from a news conference.
Woods, the unofficial host of the Genesis Open, pushed his new conference back until Wednesday and then canceled it. The tournament said in a statement that after getting daily treatment the last four days, Woods was advised by doctors to limit all activities.

PEBBLE BEACH, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods pulled out of his next two tournaments because of ongoing back problems, a somber outlook for a 14-time major champion whose comeback barely lasted three tournaments before another setback.
Woods said on his website that he was still coping with back spasms that he attributed to his withdrawal from the Dubai Desert Classic last week.
“My doctors have advised me not to play the next two weeks to continue my treatment and to let my back calm down,” Woods said. “This is not what I was hoping for or expecting.”
