Tiger Woods was forced to withdraw from the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral on Sunday during his final round, citing a left leg injury. Woods was seen favoring his left leg on several shots on the back nine of his final round. He was first seen flexing his knee after his second shot on the 10th hole and withdrew after a 321-yard drive on the 12th at the Blue Monster Course. Woods issued a statement through Chris Reimer of the PGA Tour and, as one might expect, it was curt.

Tiger issues statement on WD: "Left leg injury." That's it. That's the whole statement.— Dave Shedloski (@DaveShedloski) March 11, 2012
After a blistering final round of 62 last week at the Honda Classic, Woods was not in contention all week at Doral and did not have a birdie during his final round before dropping out on the 12th hole. With the Masters just three weeks away, there will be plenty more on the health status of the game's most popular player in the coming days.
