Tiger Woods will head into the year’s first major championship with just four competitive rounds under his belt since mid-February after opting not to play next week’s WGC FedEx St Jude Invitational.

The 15-time major winner subsequently declined to confirm when he would play again and took to social media on Friday to confirm that he will not compete before the US PGA Championship at Harding Park from August 6-9.

Woods defeated John Daly in a play-off to win the WGC-American Express Championship at Harding Park in 2005 and also compiled a perfect 5-0 record at the San Francisco venue in the 2009 Presidents Cup.
