Tiger Woods is expected to be out of action until the Open next month due to an elbow injury.

The American picked up the injury when winning the Players’ Championship in May but still managed to play the recent US Open.

It wasn’t a successful tournament for Woods though, as he recorded his worst ever total in the competition, finishing on 13 over par.

According to the 37-year-old’s personal website, he aggravated the injury at Merion, after suffering minor discomfort prior to the event.

It means the current world number one will miss the AT&T National at the Congressional Golf Club in Maryland at the end of the month.

The Open takes place at Muirfield in Scotland and Woods has won the event three times, although the most recent of these came in 2006.

The tournament starts on July 18, with South African Ernie Else the current holder of the famous jug, having beaten Adam Scott last year.
