Tiger Woods says he will not play in the US Open as he continues his recovery from back surgery.

Quoted on his own website, Woods said: "Unfortunately, I won't be there because I'm not yet physically able to play competitive golf.

"I'd like to convey my regrets to the USGA leadership, the volunteers and the fans that I won't be at Pinehurst. 

"The US Open is very important to me, and I know it's going to be a great week. Despite missing the first two majors, and several other important tournaments, I remain very optimistic about this year and my future."

The tournament takes place from 12-15 June in North Carolina.
