Tiger still in doubt for Doral

3:02 pm on 5 March 2014

Tiger Woods's status for this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship remains uncertain as the reigning champion continued to receive treatment for a sore back.

He cancelled his pre-tournament news conference and practise round, but is due to meet with the media tomorrow.

Woods, who has been paired with the Masters champion, Adam Scott, and the FedExCup winner, Henrik Stenson, for the opening two rounds at Doral, withdrew from the final round of the Honda Classic after 13 holes due to back spasms.

Woods, whose career tally of 14 majors is second to Jack Nicklaus, said in a statement after the Honda Classic that he would decide later if he could defend his WGC-Cadillac title.
