PEB­BLE BEACH, CALIF. — Tiger Woods is pulling out of his next two tour­na­ments be­cause of on­go­ing back prob­lems.

Woods said on his web­site Fri­day that his doc­tors have ad­vised him not to play so he can con­tinue treat­ment on his back. He with­drew af­ter a 77 in the first round in Dubai with what he de­scribed as back spasms.

Woods was sched­uled to play at Riviera next week in Los An­ge­les for the first time since 2006. He was also to play the Honda Clas­sic the fol­low­ing week near his home in Florida.

Woods was out of golf for 15 months while re­cov­er­ing from three back surg­eries. He missed the cut at Tor­rey Pines in San Diego in late Jan­uary.
