Tiger Woods will be sidelined for a while after undergoing surgery.
Tiger Woods will miss the next two golf events after undergoing surgery.
Tiger Woods will not compete in the next two tournaments at Torrey Pines and Riviera due to back surgery. Woods’ injury was discovered in December during the PNC Championship, and he now faces a race to be ready for the Masters on April 8.
“Tiger recently underwent a microdiscetomy treatment to remove a tiny disk fragment that was compressing his nerve after suffering discomfort during the PNC Championship,” according to a statement posted on Woods’ social media.
“His physicians and crew judged that it was a success, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
“While Tiger will not be competing at Torry Pines or Riviera, he is excited to host The Genesis Invitational.”
“I am excited to begin training and am focused on returning to the Tour,” Woods stated.
This is Woods’ fifth procedure in the previous six years, with several of them threatening to destroy his illustrious career.
Due to injury concerns, the 45-year-old only played in one tournament between August 2015 and December 2017.
In 2018, he made a stunning recovery and went on to win the Tour Championship.
Woods last competed in a Tour-level event at the Masters in November, and he spoke about his struggles to stay in shape at the time.
He explained, “My body just has instances where it doesn’t work as it used to.”

“No matter how hard I try, things simply don’t work like they used to, and no matter how hard I push and demand of this body, it just doesn’t work at times.”
Prior to the tournament, Woods mentioned how, because to his history of surgery, he needs to battle with recurring stiffness.
“It will happen more often than not,” he predicted.
“It’s been challenging for the previous four or five years as I’ve gone through treatments and attempted to return.
“I don’t have the same level of stamina that I used to have when I was exercising hard and running.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
