Tiger Woods to rest until British Open
During the U.S. Open this past weekend, Woods experienced noticeable discomfort in his elbow, which may have contributed to his 13-over-par performance, his worst in a major as a professional. Woods had the elbow examined upon returning home from Merion and doctors determined that he is suffering from a strain.
Woods has been advised to rest and undergo treatment, which led to the game's No. 1 golfer announcing that he will be unable to play the AT&T National at Congressional, which is scheduled for June 27-30.
Woods will be back in action July 18-21, when he goes for his fourth British Open and 15th major title at Murfield in Scotland.
