(CNN) – Painful back spasms will keep Tiger Woods off the golf course for this weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, FL, he announced Tuesday in a statement.

The championship golfer has won Palmer's tournament eight times.

Tiger also said in his statement that "it's too early to know about the Masters" tournament in April.
