Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Los An­ge­les: Tiger Woods has with­drawn from this week’s Safe­way Open, say­ing his game is “vul­ner­a­ble”. The 14-time ma­jor cham­pion will not take part in the event, which would have been his re­turn to com­pet­i­tive ac­tion af­ter more than a year out. The Amer­i­can, 40, last com­peted in Au­gust 2015, since when he has twice had surgery on his back. Woods is plan­ning to re­turn in early De­cem­ber at the Hero World Chal­lenge, which he hosts in the Ba­hamas. The for­mer world num­ber one, now ranked 786, said he had come to his de­ci­sion af­ter “a lot of soul search­ing and hon­est re­flec­tion.”
