Tiger Woods to miss US Open

Tiger Woods will not play in the U.S. Open at Oakmont next week.

The former World No.1, who is sitting on 14 major tournament wins, posted on his website Tuesday that he would miss the U.S. Open for the third time in the last six years.

"While I continue to work hard on getting healthy, I am not physically ready to play in this year's U.S. Open and the Quicken Loans National. I am making progress, but I'm not yet ready for tournament competition," Woods wrote.

Woods, 40, hasn't played since August 2015, when he finished tied for 10th in the Wyndham Championship. He reportedly had two back surgeries last fall.

Woods' last major victory came in the U.S. Open. He won the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, beating Rocco Mediate in a playoff. Woods is four major wins shy of Jack Nicholas' record of 18.
