Tiger Woods reveals that tiredness was the reason for missing this week's HSBC Champions competition.

Tiger Woods has admitted that fatigue was behind his decision to not play in this week's HSBC Champions tournament.

The former world number one decided against competing in China following a busy period on the tour and will not play until next week's Chevron World Challenge, his last competition of the year.

Woods said: "I was tired and doing these things is not easy. Competing and getting ready for another golf tournament, I just didn't want to do that.

"I've got four more rounds at my tournament in LA and I'm done until Abu Dhabi next year so I'm looking forward to having this extended break. This is my off-season now and I'm really looking forward to getting away from it."

The 36-year-old has won four PGA tournaments this year.
