Tiger Woods Washington, Apr 27(ANI): American golfer Tiger Woods has been ruled out of next week’s Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, because of a minor injury to his left knee and Achilles’ tendon.

Woods said he suffered the injury while hitting a shot in the third round of the Masters on April 9.

The former World No.1 did not say when he might return, but hoped to be back in a few weeks.

“I personally contacted [Wells Fargo] tournament officials and expressed my regret in not being able to play,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Woods, as saying.

“This is an outstanding event, but I must follow doctors’ orders to get better,” he added.

Woods had won in Charlotte in 2007, and had not finished worse than 11th in four appearances until a year ago, when he missed the cut. (ANI)
