Tiger Woods Will Not Play In AT&T National, Citing Injuries

Tiger Woods has been kept out of action in recent weeks due to leg injuries. The world's former No. 1 golfer had hoped to return for the AT&T Nationall on June 30th, but on Wednesday, he tweeted that he will not play in the event.

Doctor’s orders: sitting out the . I'll be in Philly to support the event. Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%.

Woods, a noted golf enthusiast, declined to participate in the U.S. Open for the same reason. Apparently two extra weeks, in his doctor's estimation, didn't give his injuries ample time to heal.

Woods has been out of action since the Players Championship on May 12th. The next PGA Tour event after the AT&T National is the John Deere Classic on July 10th. Woods has espoused hope that he will be able to be able to compete in the two remaining majors of 2011, and with the Open Championship coming on July 17th, it wouldn't be surprising to see Woods skip the Deere as well.
