Johannesburg, June. 8 : Former world number one golfer Tiger Woods has pulled out of next week's US Open saying that he is 'not physically ready' to play in the second major of the year at Oakmont.

The 40-year-old, who saw his form take a dip after suffering a series of back injuries since 2013, hasn't played competitively since August last year. He also skipped the Augusta Masters in April citing the same reason.

Woods, the 14-time major champion, however, said that he was making progress after undergoing a back surgery last September, Sport24 reported.

London, July 17 - Former number one Tiger Woods, who used to dominate at St. Andrews, struggled to make a mark as he was 11 shots and 10 years off the pace after his worst Open round at the golf course.

Woods started his Open campaign by slapping a fat iron off the tee which sounded as tuneful as piano being played by Les Dawson.

Woods, who won his last Majors in 2008, said that he made so many mistakes that he knew it was a very benign day and guys were going to go low, the Mirror reported.
