Tiger Won't Play Quail Hollow; Out Due To A Knee Problem

   Tiger Woods will not play in Charlotte next week, bypassing the Wells Fargo Championship due to a minor injury.

   Woods announced on his website today that he had suffered a Grade 1 mild medial collateral ligament spring to his left knee and a mild Achilles tendon strain while hitting a shot on the 17th hole at Augusta National during the third round of the Masters. He continued playing at the Masters and sought medical evaluation after the tournament.

   There is no timetable for when Woods will return to action.

"I personally contacted tournament officials and expressed my regret in not being able to play," Woods said. "This is an outstanding event, but I must follow doctors' orders to get better."
