Woods says he will miss U.S. Open

Tiger Woods says he will miss next month’s U.S. Open as he continues to rehab from back surgery.

The three-time U.S. Open winner said on his website Wednesday that he’s still not physically ready to play competitive golf after the March 31 procedure to fix a pinched nerve in his back.

The surgery already forced Woods to miss the Masters for the first time in his career and he recently lost his No. 1 world ranking to Adam Scott.

Woods, the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year, has made just four starts worldwide during this current season. His best finish was a tie for 25th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March -- his final tournament before the surgery.
