We finally know the reason behind the WD from Gary Woodland at the WGC-Dell Match Play last week, and it’s heartbreaking.

After taking care of Emiliano Grillo on Wednesday, Woodland was all set to face Rory Mcllroy Thursday before suddenly withdrawing. At the time, he simply stated it was a family matter. Unlike Jason Day, who had announced his mom had been diagnosed with lung cancer, Woodland didn’t go into any details.

Well, Woodland took to twitter on Wednesday to explain to everyone what exactly happened:

Woodland is not in the field this week in Houston, but will play the Masters next week. Currently 35th in the world, he has two runner up finishes this season at the Honda Classic and OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Woodland and his wife had announced on March 1 that she was pregnant with twins.
