Tiger Woods's participation in next week's US Open remained in doubt on Monday, but the 14-time major champion announced he has another project on the go.

Woods said in a statement on his website that he is writing a book about his historic victory in the 1997 Masters, which will be published by Grand Central Publishing next year.

The still untitled work, to be co-authored by Canadian golf writer Lorne Rubenstein, will include insights from the golfer not only on his spectacular 12-stroke victory at Augusta National but also on the two decades since then, the publishing firm said.

"Woods will open up about his relationship with father Earl Woods, dispel previous misconceptions and will candidly reveal many more stories that have never been told before," according to a press release.

Added Woods: "The 1997 Masters was one of the most important tournaments in my life for many reasons.

"I think about the hug with my dad and all the events that went on that week. A lot of people know generally about that tournament, but this gives me a chance to tell in detail what happened on and off the course."

Woods' first book came out in 2001. Titled "How I Play Golf" it was written with the editors of Golf Digest Magazine.

The 1997 Masters was the first of Woods' 14 majors.

His most recent was the 2008 US Open, and Woods hasn't played a tournament since undergoing two separate surgical procedures late last year to alleviate back pain.

He said in May that he hoped to return to competition in June, but it was unclear if he would make it back in time for the second major of the year, the US Open at Oakmont June 16-19.
