Tiger Woods pulled out of the Masters due to injury

Tiger Woods withdrew from the Masters due to injury, the tournament tweeted Sunday.

Woods was one of 54 golfers who made the cut to continue after the first two rounds of the August National, finishing the first 36 holes at 3-over par. He was 9 over par after seven holes in the third round.

It was the 23rd consecutive Masters that Woods made the cut, tying the all-time record held by Fred Couples (who also made the cut) and Gary Player.

The 87th Masters has been plagued by inclement weather so far. A 45-minute rainstorm on Saturday forced the cancellation of the Masters Tournament at 3:15 pm ET during the third round — forcing players and caddies to navigate the windy conditions under umbrellas.
