Tiger Woods’ leg injuries will keep the erstwhile golf ace on the bench for next week’s AT&T National golf tourney. Woods tweeted Wednesday that he was “feeling stronger every day” but would comply with his doctor’s suggestion that he remain on the disabled list for the June 30-July 4 event at Aronimink Golf Club in Philadelphia.
“Doctor’s orders: sitting out the $attnational,” @TigerWoods typed on his Twitter page. “I’ll be in Philly to support the event. Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%.”
Woods has been on the DL since withdrawing from the Players Championship in May after nine holes of hacker-like golf (he posted a 42), citing his aching left knee and Achilles tendon. The next likely place for a healthy Woods to make another in a series of comebacks would be at the British Open, which runs from July 14 through July 17.
The Philadelphia event benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, which is why Woods — with or without crutches and/or his protective boot — will attend the tournament.
