Ailing Woods pulls out of U.S. Open at Pinehurst

tiger3If you’re planning to make the two-hour drive to Pinehurst (NC) for next month’s US Open, don’t plan on seeing the biggest name in golf.

Tiger Woods officially ruled himself out of the U.S. Open while he continues his recovery from back surgery. Woods announced on his website Wednesday that he would skip the championship in two weeks.

It will be the second major that Woods has missed this year due to back issues. Woods did not play in the Masters in April. He will miss his sixth major because of injury during his professional career.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be there because I’m not yet physically able to play competitive golf,” said Woods. “I’d like to convey my regrets to the USGA leadership, the volunteers and the fans that I won’t be at Pinehurst.

“The U.S. Open is very important to me and I know it’s going to be a great week. Despite missing the first two majors, and several other important tournaments, I remain very optimistic about this year and my future.”

Woods’ last tournament was the WGC-Cadillac Championship on March 9. He had back surgery for a pinched nerve on March 31.

Woods spoke with Jack Nicklaus, host of this week’s Memorial Tournament, on Wednesday. Woods has won the Memorial five times.

“He said he’s doing well, progressing well, and he’s looking forward to getting back into the game,” Nicklaus said. “He misses it.”
