He claims it’s because of injuries from the car crash, but others claim it’s because he wants to avoid the spotlight for a while. Whatever the reason, Tiger Woods has opted out of his own golf tournament this year…the Chevron World Challenge…one that he’s hosted for the last nine years.

Has Rachel Uchitel gotten to Tiger that much?

Tiger’s replacement for the tournament will be Graeme McDowell, ranked 55th best golfer in the world. Representatives from the Chevron World Challenge said they would pick a top 50 golfer to replace Tiger…eh, what’s 5 more down the list?

Most recently, law enforcement officials have reported that there was no blood in the crashed car Tiger was driving. He had marks on him and a split lower lip however. Does this mean domestic abuse from wife and ski-lebrity Elin Nordegren prior to the crash? Stay tuned to theskichannel.com for more.
