The former world golf number one Tiger Woods has ruled himself out of next month's U.S. Open at Pinehurst in North Carolina, while he continues to recover from back surgery.

Woods, a three-time U.S. Open champion, has been sidelined from competitive golf since late March after requiring treatment for a pinched nerve in his back that had troubled him for months.
