Woods not going to Chevron

November 30, 2009

For the second straight year, Tiger Woods will not compete in his own Chevron World Challenge. And unlike last year, when Woods at least was able to serve as tournament host while recovering from knee surgery, he won't even be in attendance.

Tournament organizers have canceled Woods' press conference scheduled for tomorrow on site at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Although there is a chance the world No. 1 could still address the media via satellite this week, a report on Golfchannel.com says Woods, in the wake of the car accident outside his Florida home on Friday morning, was advised by doctors not to make the flight west "due to headaches and soreness."
