(NEW YORK) — Tiger Woods announced on Wednesday that he will not be competing until next month’s British Open due to soreness in his left elbow. Woods will skip next week’s AT&T National at Congressional, where he is the defending champion.
“I was examined after I returned home from the U.S. Open, and the doctors determined I have a left elbow strain,” Woods said on his website. “I have been advised to take a few weeks off, rest and undergo treatment. I’ll be ready to go for the British Open, and I’m looking forward to playing at Muirfield.”
Woods had a dismal performance at this past weekend’s U.S. Open, finishing tied for 32nd, 12 strokes behind winner Justin Rose.
