Tiger Woods says he won't play the British Open as his left leg continues to heal.

Woods announced Tuesday on his website that he has been advised not to play next week at Royal St. George's. The decision is not a big surprise, considering he said last week at the AT&T National
that he has not hit balls since The Players Championship nearly two
months ago.

He will be replaced in the field by Brendan Jones.

Woods says he will not return to competition until he feels his
left knee and Achilles are 100 percent recovered. He did not say
when that might be. This is the second straight major that Woods
will miss. The last one of the year is the PGA Championship from
Aug. 11-14 in Atlanta.
