As noted at PGATour.com on Wednesday, June 22, 2011, Tiger Woods will not be playing for the AT&T National which benefits his own foundation, the Tiger Woods Foundation.

“Doctor’s orders: sitting out the #attnational. I’ll be in Philly to support the event. Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%.” Tiger Woods said on his official Twitter account the same day, confirming the news.

Last June 7, Tiger Woods announced that he will not play for the US Open due to leg injury and was his first miss since 1994, and tweeted that he was disappointed.

Apparently, the former world’s No. 1 golfer is still suffering from a left-leg and Achilles teldon injuries as he have withdrawn from the recent The Players Championship and was not able to play in the Wells Fargo Championship.

As of this writing, it is not yet clear if Tiger Woods will be allowed by his doctors to play for the British Open, which will be held at Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England from July 14 to 17, 2011.
