Tiger Woods skips British Open

Tiger Woods announced on his web site that he will not play in this year's British Open, slated for July 14-17 at Royal St. George's Golf Club.

The former No. 1 player in the world hasn't teed it up competitively since the Players Championship, dubbed as the fifth major by many, earlier this year.

Woods withdrew from that tournament due to a left leg injury. He also missed the recently completed United States Open, where Rory McIlroy crushed the tournament's scoring record for his maiden major triumph.

Woods said the following on his web site:

"Unfortunately, I've been advised that I should not play in the British Open," Woods said. "As I stated at the AT&T National, I am only going to come back when I'm 100 percent ready. I do not want to risk further injury. That's different for me, but I'm being smarter this time. I'm very disappointed and want to express my regrets to the British Open fans."
