Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the Honda Classic 13 holes into his final round, according to NBC Sports.

Woods began the day 5 under par, and seven strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy, but had fallen back to even when he took himself out of the tournament.

The world No. 1 had scored a par on three straight holes, and looked to be turning his day around when he stopped play due to increasing pain in his back.
