Woods, currently sitting 12th on the Official World Golf Ranking, made the announcement via Twitter - and was quick to stress that the injury is in no way connected to the back injuries that derailed his career for most of 2016 and 2017.

Former world No.1 Woods has an impressive history with the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He has played in it 18 times, winning eight times. His most recent win there in 2013 tied Sam Snead's record of most wins in a single PGA Tour event.

However, the 43-year-old has played there only once since then; last year, when he finished in a tie for fifth.
