DORAL, Fla. — There was no back-nine charge from Tiger Woods today at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at the TPC Blue Monster.
A week after Woods blistered PGA National with 62 to finish tied for second in the Honda Classic, Woods barely made it to the back nine on Sunday before withdrawing with an injury to his left foot.

Woods was limping after hitting hit his second shot into the water on the 10th hole on Sunday that led to a bogey. He parred No. 11, hit his drive at No. 12, then told playing partner Webb Simpson he was withdrawing. An hour afterward, Woods released a statement saying he "felt tightness in my left Achilles warming up this morning, and it continued to get progressively worse."
Woods, opened with rounds of 72-67-68 and was eight shots off the lead of Bubba Watson.
Woods was 3-over in the final round with eight pars and three bogeys in his 11 holes on Sunday.
