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."

Tiger didn't injure his leg playing golf. It was when he tried to run off from his ex-wife and she hit him with the golf club and chased him into a car accident. He probably wasn't belted in when he hit that tree.

Wow! Tiger passes up an opening? If he did that years ago he would still be married.

Despite it all, the U.S. Open still won't be the same without Ol' TW.
