Tiger Woods in 2007.

The former top golfer in the world and the sport's premier drawing card has been battling left leg injuries, and says on his website he will not be healthy enough to play next week.

Woods won his own tournament at Congressional two years ago, and tied for 19th the last time the U.S. Open was played there in 1997. This will be the first time Woods will miss the U.S. Open, the second of golf's four majors, since 1994, the year he graduated high school.
