Tiger Woods withdrew from the Masters due to injury during his third round at Augusta.
Why it matters
Woods' withdrawal from the Masters is significant as he is a five-time champion at Augusta and has never missed a Masters cut in 23 consecutive tournaments. This also marks the latest setback in his career following a serious car accident in February 2021.

How we got here
Woods made a record-equalling 23rd consecutive halfway cut at Augusta National on Saturday when the delayed second round was completed. He had looked in significant discomfort throughout his Masters campaign and was rock bottom of the leaderboard by three shots as he made two bogeys and two double-bogeys over his first seven holes before he called it a day.
