Woods just tweeted, "Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for long-term gain."

According to a statement he released on his website -- "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. I hope to be ready for AT&T National, the next two majors and the rest of the year."

How the hell do you get hurt, let alone that bad, playing golf? The only thing that requires less skill is sitting on the couch.
