Tiger Woods has made it official, he will not play in the U.S. Open.
"Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for long-term gain." Woods tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
It's the first time Tiger has missed the U.S. Open as a pro. 1993 was the last U.S. Open that didn't include Tiger Woods.
Tiger has been battling knee and achilles issues all year long. Remember Woods had to withdraw from the Players Championship last month after nine holes because of injury.
This will probably cost NBC some ratings points with golf's biggest draw sitting this major championship out.
You have to wonder if Tiger Woods will compete in any majors this summer or just shut it down. The HQ never thought it would mention Eric Gagne, Brady Anderson, and Eldrick in the same sentence.
