U.S. Open 2011: Tiger Woods Withdraws Due To Injury

Tiger Woods will not be playing in the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md after all. Woods, who has battled knee and achilles problems since competing in the Masters in April, announced he will be sitting out the 2011 U.S. Open.

Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for long-term gain.    

Woods had consistently maintained that his goal was to be recovered in time to play in the event. But then he withdrew after nine holes at the 2011 Players Championship on May 12 with pain in his knee and achilles. He maintained that he wanted to play in the U.S. Open in a press conference on May 24, but Jack Nicklaus let it slip before the Memorial that Woods had told him he wasn't sure he would actually recover in time. As it turned out, he hasn't.

The 2011 U.S. Open is scheduled for June 16-19 at Congressional Country Club.
