NEW YORK -- Tiger Woods announced on his website Tuesday that he has withdrawn from next week's U.S. Open.
The 14-time major winner said his knee and Achilles tendon injuries will keep him from participating in the Maryland tournament.
"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," Woods said on his site.
"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."
Woods sprained his left knee and strained his left Achilles tendon while hitting a shot during the third round of the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, in April.
