tiger woods us open twitterTiger just announced that he won’t be playing the in the US Open next week.  I can’t say that this was a huge surprise after Jack Nicklaus stated last week that Tiger might not be healthy enough to play:

“Tiger called me Friday [to withdraw from the Memorial],” Nicklaus said. “He said, ‘I’m still hobbling, and I don’t know whether I’m going to make the U.S. Open or not.’ “


“I am extremely disappointed that I won’t be playing in the U.S. Open, but it’s time for me to listen to my doctors and focus on the future,” Woods said. “I was hopeful that I could play, but if I did, I risk further damage to my left leg. My knee and Achilles tendon are not fully healed. I hope to be ready for AT&T National, the next two majors and the rest of the year.”
