Tiger Drops Out of Tourney

Good news for the competition: Tiger Woods announced Monday that injuries from his car crash on Friday will prevent him from participating in this week’s Chevron World Challenge—a golf tournament that he hosts and which benefits his foundation. "I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week," Woods said in a statement on his Web site. "I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I'm very sorry that I can't be there." Tiger will not participate in another tournament until 2010. Meanwhile, TMZ reports that the Florida Highway Patrol is seeking a warrant to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Woods in order to determine whether his injuries were caused by his car accident or, as has been rumored, by his wife during a domestic dispute. The decision to obtain a warrant suggests that authorities believe they can show probable cause that a crime was committed.
