Woods was noticeably limping on the 10th and 11th holes Sunday at Doral. After hitting his tee shot on the 12th hole, Woods was driven away in a cart.
He cited an injury to his left leg as the reason for his withdrawal.
Woods had said his left knee has been as strong as its been in years. He has not withdrawn from a tournament since leaving after nine holes at the Players Championship last May. He then missed three months to let the knee heal.
Woods is scheduled to play at Bay Hill in two weeks, his final tournament before the Masters.
