Tiger Woods to miss the Open Championship

Former world number one Tiger Woods will miss The Open Championship this month as he is yet to recover from his left leg injury that has troubled him through out the year.

Struggling for form and fitness Woods has slipped down the world rankings in recent months and will miss another oppourtunity to show the golfing world he isn't the spentforce he has been labelled by some experts.

However despite his recent demise Woods is still confident in his game, saying on his website"I think my best years are still ahead of me and I'm very confident and optimistic about the future."

The injury denies Woods the chance to get closer to Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major titles, and with Woods four behind on 14, many believe he won't surpass his American compatriots record, when only a few years ago the question was when he would, not if.
