Golfer Tiger Woods pauses during a news conference at Aronimink Golf Club on Monday in Newtown Square, Pa.
Tiger Woods says he'll return to golf when he's physically able.
Recent MRI tests show an inflamed neck joint is making it hard for him to turn his head, but the injury will require little more than medicine and rest.
Woods withdrew Sunday from the final round of The Players Championship due to the neck injury. He said on his website Wednesday that he has experienced some pain and headaches. He also said the injury was unrelated to the Nov. 27 car accident that touched off revelations of infidelity.
Woods said in a press conference this week that he hopes to be able to defend his title at the Memorial, which starts June 3 at Muirfield Village. His next tournament will be his first without swing coach Hank Haney, who stepped aside Monday.
