Tiger Woods has announced that he will miss the 2022 US Open at Brookline with his body not fit enough to take part in the year’s third major.

Woods’ only two appearances this year since returning to golf have been at the first two majors in the Masters at Augusta in April and the USPGA Championship in May.

He has decided to skip the US Open, which takes place at Brookline from June 16-19, with his body not fully recovered from the exertions of the USPGA.

Woods announced his withdrawal from the US Open in a tweet, in which he did confirm his plans to play in the 2022 Open Championship at St Andrews in July and in Ireland in the build up.

“I previously informed the USGA that I will not be competing in the US Open as my body needs more time to get stronger for major championship golf,” Woods said in his tweet.

“I do hope and plan to be ready to play in Ireland at JP McManus Pro-AM and at The Open next month. I’m excited to get back out there soon!”

Woods made the cut at the Masters at Augusta on his return to competitive golf following serious leg injuries suffered in a car crash in 2021, but finished 47th with a 13-over total.

The 15-time major winner also made the cut at Southern Hills in the USPGA Championship but withdrew after completing the third round due to injury.

Woods is a third-time US Open winner having lifted the title in 2000, 2002 and 2008.

Woods won at Pebble Beach in 2000 by a record 15-shot margin, triumphed at Bethpage in 2002 and beat Rocco Mediate in the play-off at Torrey Pines in 2008.

He was also runner-up in the major in 2005 and 2007, finished third in 1999 and was fourth in 2010.

His last US Open appearance came in 2020 when he missed the cut at Winged Foot.
