Woods says on his website that he had his left elbow checked out when he returned home from the U.S. Open at Merion. He says doctors found a strain to his left elbow and advised him to take a few weeks off for rest and treatment.
He will not be playing the AT&T National next week at Congressional, which benefits his foundation. Woods is the defending champion at that tournament.
The British Open will be July 18-21 at Muirfield.
