Woods pulls out of US PGA Championship


Tiger Woods has withdrawn from next week's US PGA Championship.

The 14-time major champion has not played a competitive golf tournament since last August's Wyndham Championship.

Woods has undergone multiple operations on his back and, after hinting he could play in the final two majors of 2016, pulled out of last week's Open Championship at Royal Troon.

He will again be absent at Baltusrol, with his place in the field being taken by Harold Varner III.
