Woods, winner of 14 major golf championships, hasn’t featured in a tournament now for two months. He confirmed last week that he’d skip this week’s British Open, as he recovers from knee and ankle injuries.
Woods hasn’t won a tournament since November 2009, one month after he claimed the last of his 71 U.S. PGA Tour victories. He’s fallen to No. 19 in the Official World Golf Ranking after holding the top spot for a record 281 weeks.
