Tiger Woods will not play in this year's US Open as a result of injuries to ligaments in his left knee and his left Achilles. He announced the decision on Twitter.
"Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for long-term gain," he wrote.
Woods will have gone 12 straight majors without a victory after the Open. This will be the first time that he has missed the major since 1994, the year between high school and college.
