Tiger Woods ruled out of AT&T National

There will be no repeat of last year's redemptive tournament win at the AT&T National for Tiger Woods in 2013, as he announced Wednesday that a left elbow strain will rule him out of the event.

The victory at Congressional last year was a big part of Tiger's resurgence as the man-to-beat in golf, a run that continued in 2013 and has seen him rise to No1 once more, with four titles this year to his name.

Woods will be back in action in time for next month's British Open Championship.

The World No1 had complained of pain before last week's U.S. Open and the action at Merion seemed to aggravate the condition, where he was visibly shaking his left arm and wincing.

Despite pre-major odds heavily favoring the 37-year-old, he was some way behind eventual winner Justin Rose.

"I was examined after I returned home from the U.S. Open, and the doctors determined I have a left elbow strain," the American said in a statement on his website.

"I have been advised to take a few weeks off, rest and undergo treatment. I'll be ready to go for the British Open and I'm looking forward to playing at Muirfield."

Instead of Congressional, the greens of Muirfield, Scotland at the British Open in July 18-21 is scheduled to be the next tournament that the 14-times major champion returns to our screens in a playing capacity.
