Woods hopeful he will play in US Open

Tiger Woods is hopeful that he will be fit enough to play in next month’s US Open.

Currently using crutches and wearing a protective boot on his left foot, the former world number one golfer is hopeful that he can begin practicing soon, but It is extremely doubtful that he will play in the Memorial Tournament next week in Ohio,

Woods said: "I feel that, in the next week or so, I can start practicing pain free. That's where I'm at."

Woods was forced to withdraw from the Players last month after only playing nine holes due to the injury and his lack of golf since has seen him plummet to number 12 in the world golf rankings this week. It is the first time the 14 time Major winner has been out of the top 10 in 14 years.

Woods said: "I haven't played. It's one of the reasons I've fallen as far as I have. When I did play, I haven't played well. Winning takes care of all of that."

If Woods plays in the US Open, he would go into it having not played in a tournament for a few months, however the last time he did this back in 2008 when he was forced to have surgery after the Masters, he went on to win the US Open.
