Woods is rehabbing from back surgery and hasn’t played since last August.

The PGA Championship is July 28-31 at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey.

Tiger’s agent says he will not play in any event the rest of the year.

Woods last played a PGA Tour event in August 2015, when he finished tied for 10th at the Wyndham Championship.
