LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Tiger Woods, struggling to return to top form after undergoing back surgery, will not play in the 2014 US Open next month, he announced on his website on Wednesday.

The 14-time major winner has not competed since the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March and this is the sixth major championship the American has missed because of injuries.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be there because I’m not yet physically able to play competitive golf,” Woods said.

“I’d like to convey my regrets to the USGA leadership, the volunteers and the fans that I won’t be at Pinehurst.
