Next time, Tiger. Next time.

Get well.

Woods announced on his website that he would be skipping the U.S. Open in two weeks.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be there because I’m not yet physically able to play competitive golf,” said Woods, who will miss his sixth major due to injury as a professional. “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 finished third in the 1999 U.S. Open and second to Michael Campbell in 2005 at Pinehurst.
