Tiger Woods Missing The U.S. Open

Tiger Woods injured knee

Thanks to the $1 million dollar knee injury, Tiger Woods will not be playing in the 2011 U.S. Open.

The golfer sprained his left knee and strained his left Achilles tendon while hitting a shot during the Masters Tournament in April, then promised to make a huge donation to charity if reporters did not ask about his knee injury.

Unfortunately, his left leg is still acting up as he released a statement on his website, reading:

"I am extremely disappointed that I won't be playing in the U.S. Open, but it's time for me to listen to my doctors and focus on the future. I was hopeful that I could play, but if I did, I risk further damage to my left leg. My knee and Achilles tendon are not fully healed."

The 35-year-old hopes by sitting out in this years Open he'll be ready to play in the "AT&T National, the next two majors and the rest of the year."

We're sure his presence will be missed, but he's got to do what's best for him.

Rest up, Tiger!
