"I've been receiving treatment, but it hasn't improved enough to play", Woods said in a post on Twitter. "My lower back is fine, and I have no long-term concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players".

He continued in a follow-up tweet: "I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans".

It is shocking that he's missing Arnold Palmer's tournament at Bay Hill (of all places), but I don't necessarily think there are any alarms to sound. The world's top players then head directly to the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass which makes the move from May to March this season.

Pairings like this week's threesome with Kevin Kisner and Keith Mitchell, last week's victor at the Honda Classic, will give him an idea of what to expect when it comes time to make his captain's picks and create potential pairings for the matches.

Woods didn't specify what caused his neck pain, but he skipped the Honda Classic last week and during the British Open a year ago, he wore KT Tape on his neck after he woke up with stiffness.

There are a lot of questions here - most best saved for another day - but it is worth questioning why Woods played at Riviera and Mexico if he had the strain.

Woods is expected by many to compete for majors this year.
