The PGA Tour heads down I-95 this week to Washington D.C. for the Quicken Loans National hosted by Tiger Woods. Unfortunately, the 14-time major winner will not be playing, nor attending. Instead, he will continue receiving treatment to manage his pain medications.
Rick Singer, CEO of Woods’ foundation, said in a statement Sunday night that Woods will not attend this week’s event, according to a Golf Channel report.
“Tiger will stay in touch with the tournament and receive regular updates during the week,” Singer said.

Last week, Woods made his first public statement since his DUI arrest on Memorial Day stating he was “receiving professional help” while thanking his supporters. We aren’t so sure this street mural of his mug shot painted in Australia would classify as something he’s thankful for.
