Woods won't be present for Quicken Loans National

Tiger Woods will not be present for the Quicken Loans National, an event he usually hosts with his foundation.

Instead, the 41-year-old American will continue to receive treatment to help manage his medications, Rick Singer, CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation, said in a statement.

"Tiger will stay in touch with the tournament and receive regular updates during the week," Singer said via Golf.com.

The PGA Tour event, which takes place in Washington and gets underway on Thursday, has been put on for the past 10 years. The tournament will host a bevy of golf stars, including Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed and Jon Rahm.

Woods was arrested at the end of May on suspicion of DUI. While he tested negative for alcohol, the 14-time major champion admitted he had taken a cocktail of prescription medications for a sleep disorder and to manage his back pain.

He released a statement earlier in June that said he was undergoing treatment.
