Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he was unable to commit to playing golf in 2016.
According to ESPN, Woods said at a press conference that he hasn't yet begun rehabilitation since undergoing surgery at least twice on his back. Woods added that he doesn't know exactly when he will be able to resume the sport.
The nearly 40-year-old pro-golfer told reporters the hardest part about not being able to play golf next year is knowing that he has nothing to look forward to or build toward.
Woods is known for his 14-major, 79-PGA Tour victory career which lasted nearly 20 years. He was ranked No. 1 in the world for 683 weeks but has now dropped to No. 400 in the ranks. Woods will continue to drop in rankings for as long as he remains off the green.
