Woods will likely skip the Players and next play at The Masters in April.
He played at the Genesis Invitational last week, making the cut and finishing tied with 45th.
Woods refused to answer questions about his future schedule and said he would not play again in the Masters.
Woods said that he would not play more than the majors, and perhaps a few more. Thats it. Thats all that my body will allow. My back is the same as it was before all the surgeries. My leg is the same way it is now. Thats my future.
So, my goal last year was play in all four majors. I got three out of the four. I hope to be able to get all four this year, with a few more here and there. Thats all for the rest. I know that, and I get it. Thats my reality.
