PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida — The road to the Masters got off to a bumpy start Sunday for Tiger Woods when he withdrew from the Honda Classic with what he said was a lower back injury.

Woods was 5-over par for the final round — 12 shots behind Rory McIlroy at the time — when he shook hands with Luke Guthrie on the 13th green and told him he was done. It was the farthest point at PGA National, and the tournament sent a van to collect Woods and his family.

Police kept the media from the parking lot.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida — The PGA Tour is closing on a deal for Detroit-based Quicken Loans to become title sponsor of Tiger Woods' tournament at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., The Associated Press has learned.

Two people who have been told about the deal said Quicken Loans could begin its sponsorship before the next tournament, to be played June 26-29. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not completed and has not been announced.

Dan Gilbert, who owns the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, is the chairman and founder of Quicken Loans.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida — Zach Johnson made a quadruple-bogey 8 on his second hole and still managed a 67 in the Honda Classic on Thursday.

Tiger Woods had good birdie chances on his opening four holes and couldn't break par.

Johnson made seven birdies after his soggy start — two straight shots into the water — and it took a few minutes for him to digest a wild round at PGA National. He looked as though he might have shot himself out of the tournament, but he ended the round two shots behind co-leaders William McGirt and Rory Sabbatini among the early starters.

Keep an eye on Tiger Woods’s feet today — he's sporting something a little brighter than normal for the first round of the Honda Classic.

Woods will be walking the course in a pair of custom Nike TW ’14 shoes featuring the red, white and blue motif that the 14-time Major champion chose last month out of thousands of submissions as the winning design in the TW ’14 NIKEiD contest. The designer, Dane Thompson, was inspired to incorporate patriotic colors to cheer on team USA this winter and at the 2014 Ryder Cup, as well as in support of Woods at the 2014 U.S Open.
