Thai player gets into US Open when Tiger Woods withdraws

FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) — Tiger Woods' decision to sit out the U.S. Open worked out well for a 23-year-old from Thailand who is replacing him.

Woods announced Tuesday that he was not ready for competition as he recovers from two back surgeries last year.
