Woods to miss all four majors

14-time major winner will not play this season

Tiger Woods will miss all four majors in a calendar year for the first time in his career after withdrawing from next week's USPGA Championship.

Woods is continuing to work on his fitness after undergoing two back operations last autumn and the 14-time major winner does not feel ready for competitive golf.

His agent has confirmed he will not compete at Baltusrol next week and will miss the remainder of the PGA Tour season.

"Continuing to make progress, but simply not ready for PGA," Steinberg wrote in an email to The Golf Channel.

"Will not play in the 15/16 season and will continue to rehab and work hard to then assess when he starts play for the 16/17 season."

Having not played since finishing tied for tenth at the Wyndham Championship last August, Woods has dropped to 628 in the world rankings and his place in the USPGA has been taken by America's Harold Varner III.
