Woods announced Tuesday on his website that he has been advised not to play next week at Royal St. George’s. The decision is not a big surprise, considering he said last week at the AT&T National that he has not hit balls since The Players Championship nearly two months ago.
Professional golfer Tiger Woods smiles as he eyes his line on an upcoming putt in a round two match at the Accenture Match Play Championship World Golf Championships held at the La Costa Resort and Spa on February 27, 2004 in Carlsbad, California.
He will be replaced in the field by Jason Dufner.
Woods says he will not return to competition until he feels his left knee and Achilles are 100 percent recovered. He did not say when that might be. This is the second straight major that Woods will miss. The last one of the year is the PGA Championship from Aug. 11-14 in Atlanta.
