Woods, who has not played professionally since May 15th, has opted to skip next week's AT&T National Tournament because he is still recovering from an ankle injury. He tweeted: "Doctor's orders: sitting out the #attnational. I'll be in Philly to support the event. Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%."
His absence at the U.S. Open last weekend didn't keep records from being set however, as Scottish golfer Rory McIlroy shot 16 under par, a first for a U.S. Open course.
It's starting to feel like the longer Tiger is out the greater the competition will be. Are you hoping he gets back in the hunt soon to beat Jack Nicklaus' record of 16 Majors?
