Tiger Woods Withdraws From the Us Open Because His 'Body Needs More Time to Grow Better' Following a Near-fatal Car Accident

Tiger Woods has withdrawn from next week’s US Open outside Boston, citing a need for more time to prepare his body for major championship golf.

The 15-time major champion is still recovering from a near-fatal car accident in February 2021 and had to withdraw from the PGA Championship after the third round in May.

After competing in the first two majors of the year, Woods decided to skip the third in order to prepare his body for the 150th Open at St. Andrews in July.

Woods stated in a tweet:

“I informed the USGA previously that I would not be competing in the US Open because my body requires more time to strengthen for major championship golf.” I’m hoping and planning to be ready to play in the JP Pro Am (in Ireland) and The Open next month. I can’t wait to get back out there! ‘

Woods intends to compete in the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews next month.

In April, he said, “I’m looking forward to St Andrews.” That is something close to and dear to my heart.

‘I’ve won two Opens there; it’s golf’s birthplace, and it’s my favorite golf course in the world.’ “I’ll be there for that.”
