Tiger Woods withdrew from the Genesis Invitational golf tournament in Los Angeles after being carted off the course with symptoms of influenza.

The 48-year-old pro golfer was taken to the locker room by a rules official at about 1:30 p.m. local time Friday. Emergency personnel later arrived at the Riviera Country Club course, according to the PGA Tour.

Woods was treated inside the clubhouse for “potential dehydration and dizziness related to his illness” with an IV bag.

Though the PGA Tour noted that Woods was having back spasms earlier in the day, the golfer confirmed Saturday that he withdrew from the tournament after a flu diagnosis.

“I would like to confirm that I had to withdraw from @thegenesisinv due to illness, which we now know is influenza,” Woods posted on X. “I am resting and feeling better. Good luck to the players this weekend. I’m disappointed to not be there and want to thank @GenesisUSA and all the fans for the support.”
