Verona, USA: Tiger Woods has pulled out of a charity golf event scheduled for Wednesday because of back pain which troubled him during the PGA Tour's The Barclays event, organizers said Monday.

"The important thing for Tiger is to make sure he is 100 percent healthy and not risk further injuring himself," said tournament organizer Notah Begay.

Woods was set to play in the 18-hole exhibition, called the Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge in the state of New York, until back spasms bothered him during The Barclays. Despite the injury, he finished runner-up on Sunday, one shot behind Adam Scott.
