Tiger Woods withdraws from own tourney

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from his own golf tournament after citing injuries from a car crash near his Florida home.

Woods said in a statement on his Web site Monday that injuries won't allow him to play in the Chevron World Challenge. He said he would return to competition next year.

"I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week," Woods said. "I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I'm very sorry that I can't be there." His decision to withdraw comes after a car crash left him with cuts and bruises when his SUV hit a fire hydrant and a tree.
