While the sports world anxiously waits to hear if Tiger Woods will compete in the 2022 Masters, Harris English has announced that he's withdrawing from the event.

English had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip on Feb. 14. Although his rehab is reportedly going well, it's just too soon for him to be competing in a major.

"Regrettably, I will not be able to compete next week at The Masters," English announced on Twitter. "I'm progressing very well from recent hip surgery, but have to exercise caution as I return to play. I look forward to joining my friends and fellow competitors on the PGA Tour soon."

Last year, English finished tied for 21st at Augusta National. That's his best result at the Masters so far in his career.

English has not played on the PGA Tour since the Sony Open in January.

According to multiple reports, English will not be replaced in the field for the Masters.

We're wishing English a speedy recovery.
