US Open winner Justin Rose will not compete in this week's AT&T National at Congressional Country Club.
“I'm disappointed to withdraw from the AT&T National, but the last three weeks have been extremely demanding both mentally and physically,” Rose said in a statement distributed by the tournament, according to the Washington Times. "This tournament has been very good to me -- especially in 2010 -- and I would play if I felt I could. Tiger and his Foundation run a great tournament, and I wish I could be there.”
Defending AT&T champ Tiger Woods pulled out of the tournament last week, saying he needed to rest his strained elbow.
Rose became the first English player to win a major in 17 years when he beat Phil Mickelson and Jason Day by two shots at the US Open. Rose tied for 13th at last weekend's Travelers Championship.
