A rod, several screws and pins were inserted after the golf legend suffered open fractures to both the upper and lower portions of his tibia and fibula in his right leg, as well as a shattered ankle.

Woods carded a nine-over 79 on Saturday to leave him joint-bottom of the 79 players that made the cut.

Speaking after his poor outing, the American remarked: “Well, I’m sore.

“I know that is for a fact. We’ll do some work and see how it goes.”

He added: “I just didn’t play well. I didn’t hit the ball very well and got off to not the start I needed to get off to.

“I thought I hit a good tee shot down the second and ended up in the water. I just never really got any kind of momentum on my side.

“I couldn’t get off the bogey train. I didn’t do anything right.

“I didn’t hit many good shots. Consequently I ended up with a pretty high score.”

The PGA of America then confirmed Woods’ withdrawal, as president Jim Richerson remarked: “Tiger Woods has informed us that he is withdrawing from the 2022 PGA Championship.

“We admire Tiger’s valiant effort to compete here at Southern Hills and wish him the best as he continues to recover from his injuries.”

Woods, who also played in the Masters as Augusta in April, has already indicated he wishes to compete in the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews in July.
