LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On a quiet morning at Valhalla Golf Club, players made their way around the course for practice or hung out around the driving range, but already the most-discussed player is not yet on the grounds.

Tiger Woods withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone in Akron, Ohio, on Sunday and instead of traveling on to Louisville, flew back to his home in Florida for further evaluation. PGA officials today say he hasn't officially withdrawn. In fact, he's still scheduled for a 9:30 a.m. news conference in the Valhalla press center on Tuesday -- a press conference that more than likely will not happen. But on Monday afternoon, his agent finally provided something of an update to ESPN.

Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, texted ESPN.com's Bob Harig the following, "Way too early. He has to rest and get treatment and then assess later," he wrote. "Pointless to make that decision now without proper time to give him best chance. Nothing further today, maybe [not] even tomorrow."
