Tiger Woods has officially withdrawn from the U.S. Open, he announced today on his website.
"Unfortunately, I won't be there because I'm not yet physically able to play competitive golf," Woods said on his site. "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," he added, "I remain very optimistic about this year and my future."
The report gave no indication of when Woods might return. The U.S. Open is June 12-15, with the British Open set for July 17-20.
Woods is still rehabbing after microdiscectomy surgery for a pinched nerve in his back on March 31. He hasn't played competitively since the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on March 9.
