Tiger Woods Won’t Be Competing at the US Open

Tiger Woods spent the last few months trying to make a comeback to the world of professional golf, but he’s ready to take a short break. The golf legend said he won’t take part in the upcoming US Open because he needs more time to “get stronger”. This announcement comes shortly after Woods withdrew from the PGA Championship back in May after three rounds, posting his career-worst score at the event. "I will not be competing in the US Open as my body needs more time to get stronger for major championship golf. I do hope and plan to be ready to play in Ireland at the JP McManus Pro-Am and at The Open next month. I'm excited to get back out there soon,” wrote Woods on Twitter. The 15-time major winner returned to competition at the 2022 Masters Tournament. It was his very first professional tournament since a tragic car crash in 2021 that left him dealing with major injuries, raising questions if he would ever compete again. The US Open Championship is set to take place between June 16-19 at the Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Despite missing this event, Woods intents to take part in the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews, Scotland in mid-July.
