“It is time to retire” – Here’s how fans reacted to Tiger Woods’ sudden withdrawal from Hero World Challenge

Fans who were eagerly waiting to watch Tiger Woods swing at the 2022 Hero World Challenge will have to wait longer as the legend was forced to withdraw, citing a foot injury. The challenge will take place on Thursday, December 1.



The 15-time major champion was forced to withdraw from the annual event due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot, as he announced on Monday. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of thick tissue that connects the heel bone to the toe. It is a condition that causes too much pain in the bottom of the heel. He developed the condition while preparing for the challenge this week, making it difficult for him to walk.



“In preparation and practice for this week’s Hero World Challenge, I’ve developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot, which is making it difficult to walk,” Woods said in a statement posted on his Twitter handle on Monday.




The 46-year-old was last seen in July at the 150th Open Championship in St. Andrews. He was set to return to action at the Hero World Challenge as a sponsor exemption after almost four months of absence on the professional tour.
