Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – Tiger Woods withdrew from the Players Championship on Sunday after playing six holes. He cited a neck injury as his reason.

Woods was two-over par for his round with bogeys on the third and fifth holes. Those bogeys dropped him to two-under for the tournament, 12 strokes behind Lee Westwood at that point.

“I’ve been playing with a bad neck for quite a while,” admitted Woods, who said he first felt the pain before The Masters. “They want me to go get a picture (MRI) on it next week. I might have a bulging disk. I’ve been playing through it. I can’t play through it anymore.”

With this withdrawal, Woods is in danger of losing his No. 1 world ranking. Phil Mickelson could pass Woods for the top spot in the rankings with a win at the TPC Sawgrass.

Mickelson enters the final round five strokes behind Westwood. A win would give Mickelson enough world ranking points to pass Woods. It would mark the first time in his career that Mickelson would reach the No. 1 spot.

If he were to come from behind and win, Mickelson would match the largest comeback in Players Championship history. Justin Leonard erased a five-shot deficit in 1998 and Henrik Stenson matched that feat last year.
