Tiger Woods To Miss AT&T National Golf Tournament At Congressional Country Club

Play associated audio

The AT&T National golf tournament returns to Congressional Country Club in Bethesda next week. But it's reigning champion—who also happens to be the tournament's host—will not be playing.

Tiger Woods announced he will not play at this year's AT&T National—which benefits his foundation—because of an elbow injury.

This is the third time since 2007, when PGA golf started returning on a nearly annual basis to Congressional, that Woods has missed a tournament there.

He missed the 2008 tournament because of knee surgery, and was out during the 2011 U.S. Open because of an achilles injury.

Woods won last year's tournament in thrilling style, edging out the win with a clutch shot on the last hole of the final round. Though he will not be playing, Woods is expected to be at some of the pre-tournament ceremonies.

Practice rounds start on Tuesday, with the first round taking place on Thursday.
