(AP) -- Tiger Woods' sore left elbow will keep him out of competition until the British Open.
Woods said Wednesday on his website that doctors found a strain in his left elbow and advised that he take a few weeks off for rest and treatment. That means he will miss the AT&T National next week at Congressional, where he is the defending champion. The tournament benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation.
"I was examined after I returned home from the U.S. Open, and the doctors determined I have a left elbow strain," Woods said. "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."
