Pinehurst (United States) (AFP) - Practice began Monday for the 114th US Open without Tiger Woods, the 14-time major champion still recovering from surgery with no timetable to return and a six-year major win drought. Woods, trying to pass the all-time record of 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, captured his most recent major crown at the 2008 US Open, when he limped through an 18-hole playoff at Torrey Pines on a broken leg to defeat Rocco Mediate.
