Tiger Woods withdraws from tournament

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from his
own golf tournament after citing injuries from a car crash near his
Florida home.

Tiger Woods was reportedly injured in South Florida in a car accident after his car hit a fire hydrant, a tree and then rolled into his neighbor's yard. Alcohol was not a factor, police say.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Tiger Woods has withdrawn from his
own golf tournament after citing injuries from a car crash near his
Florida home.

Woods said in a statement on his Web site Monday that injuries
won't allow him to play in the Chevron World Challenge. He said he
would return to competition next year.

"I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my
tournament this week," Woods said. "I am certain it will be an
outstanding event and I'm very sorry that I can't be there."

His decision to withdraw comes after a car crash left him with
cuts and bruises when his SUV hit a fire hydrant and a tree.
