CNN – Fifteen-time major champion Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the US Open at Los Angeles Country Club next month as he continues to recover from a recent surgery.
The 47-year-old, who missed last week’s PGA Championship, last competed at the Masters in April but withdrew in third round after reaggravating his plantar fasciitis – a tissue inflammation that causes pain in the heel.
Following his Masters withdrawal, Woods underwent a “subtalar fusion procedure” to treat post-traumatic arthritis in his ankle. The injury stemmed from severe leg injuries he suffered in a car crash in 2021.
“I am disappointed to have to WD this morning due to reaggravating my plantar fasciitis,” Woods said in a tweet at the time. “Thank you to the fans and to @TheMasters who have shown me so much love and support. Good luck to the players today!”
Woods has not played at the US Open since 2019 …
