Tiger Woods withdraws from Bridgestone Invitational with back pain

For Tiger Woods, the 2014 season might be all but over after withdrawing from another PGA Tour event because of injury.

Woods, playing in just his third event start since returning from back surgery that kept him out of the Masters and the U.S. Open, pulled out of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday citing a lower back injury.

Tiger got to the ninth hole sitting at 3-over for the day, and after his tee shot grabbed his back and could barely walk to the golf cart that was taking him off the course, leaving Firestone early for his second Sunday WD of the year.
