The USGA confirmed on Monday that, as anticipated, Tiger Woods has decided to pull out of the 2023 U.S. Open, set to take place at Los Angeles Country Club in June.
Woods is still actively rehabilitating from a series of injuries and surgical procedures, including plantar fasciitis and an operation on his right ankle performed on April 19. This surgery was needed to treat the "post-traumatic arthritis" that developed from a previous talus fracture, an injury he incurred during his car accident in February 2021.
Though there's no specific schedule for Woods's comeback, his absence from both The Masters and the PGA Championship last week led to widespread speculation that he may not be ready to traverse the challenging terrains of the Los Angeles Country Club by mid-June.
Woods participated in the Genesis Invitational back in February and finished in a tie for 45th place, sparking discussions about his ability to compete in all major tournaments. However, that has been his sole tournament participation this year, and it's currently uncertain when he will be able to return to competitive play.
Tiger Woods isn't playing in the 2023 US Open and probably won't tee it up competitively again this season.
But don't count out a return for 2024 and beyond. https://t.co/C4UycHZPD7

Throughout his illustrious career, Woods has clinched the U.S. Open title three times - in 2000, 2002, and most recently in 2008.
Woods is still pursuing the record set by Jack Nicklaus of 18 victories in major tournaments. With 15 wins under his belt, the latest being at the 2019 Masters, Woods continues his pursuit.
The final major tournament of the year, the 2023 Open Championship, is set to take place at Royal Liverpool from July 20-23. As Woods appears to be focusing on major tournaments as his career winds down, this would present the next chance for him to participate.
