Tiger Woods to miss US Open

Former world number one continues recovery from injury

Tiger Woods will not take part in the US Open in two weeks' time as he continues his recovery from a major back injury.

The former world number one is recovering from two major back operations and has not played competitively since finishing joint 10th in the Wyndham Championship in August last year, but had registered to play at Oakmont.

However, he has now revealed that he will be unable to take part in the tournament which he has won three times and has also ruled himself out of the Quicken Loans National the following week.

"While I continue to work hard on getting healthy, I am not physically ready to play in this year's US Open and the Quicken Loans National," a statement on his official website read.

"I am making progress, but I'm not yet ready for tournament competition.

"I want to thank everyone for their continued support. The positive texts, emails and calls I have received have been incredible.

"I want to wish Mike Davis, Diana Murphy, the USGA, the players and everyone at Oakmont a very successful week.

"I will be hosting and attending my foundation's tournament, the Quicken Loans National, at Congressional. It's the 10th year of our tournament, and we continue to support the community, the military and the programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation."
