Tiger Woods announced Wednesday he will not compete in the AT&T National next week at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square.

Woods, who has been recovering from injuries to his left knee and his left Achilles tendon, made the announcement on Twitter.

"Doctor's orders: sitting out the #attnational. I'll be in Philly to support the event. Feeling stronger every day, but not 100%," his tweet said.

Woods will take part in some pre-tournament activities and hold a news conference on Tuesday. The tournament's main beneficiary is the Tiger Woods Foundation.

PGA Tour schedule

Woods has not played since May 12 when he withdrew after nine holes at The Players Championship. He said at a May 24 press conference at Aronimink that he wanted to return at the U.S. Open, but the injuries were still bothering him when he announced his withdrawal the week before.

His next goal was the AT&T National, but that has not worked out. He did not say whether he will be back in time for the British Open in three weeks.
