Tiger Woods Won’t Be Back For Some Time

Woods, that has made just three starts in a couple of years, likely won’t play again this year after he’d his back surgery that is fourth in Texas. The latest procedure alleviated pain in his back and leg, Woods announced on his web site Thursday.

That I’m confident this will relieve my back spasms and pain, and The operation went well,” Woods said in a statement. When fixed, “, I anticipate playing with my kids getting back to a normal life, competing in professional golf and living without the pain I’ve been fighting so long.”

Woods, who also has had four surgeries on his left knee, first had surgery on his back and then had two procedures in the autumn of 2015.

According to his statement, a disc in Woods back seriously narrowed because of causing sciatica, the three surgeries and severe back and leg pain. During the recent operation, the damaged disc was removed and the collapsed disc space was elevated to levels that were regular. The goal is to relieve the pressure on the nerve, the statement said. The procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Guyer of the Centre for Disc Replacement at the Texas Back Institute.

Woods, 41, last played in February, where he shot a birdie-free 77 in the very first round before removing. Where he missed the cut his only other start was in the Farmers Insurance Open the week prior.

His only appearance on the golf course in 2016 arrived at the Hero World Challenge in December. While he finished 15th in the 17-man field, he tied for the tournament lead in birdies (24), seemed healthy and upbeat.

Before beginning therapy, he will be resting for several weeks. The recovery interval is usually about half a year. That would mean Woods, a winner of 14 major tournaments and 79 PGA Tour titles, won’t play in any of the four majors for a second straight year. He is now rated No. 788 in the world.

Woods is in good spirits after the surgery, said his agent, Mark Steinberg.

USA TODAY Sports, he believes somewhat that the large weight was lifted off his shoulders,” Steinberg told. “The three previous operations were somewhat temporary repairs. But it got to the point where the pain was more common and this latest surgery was something he had to do.”

Steinberg said Woods decided to take a conservative approach along with his back previously three years with his difficulties. That alternative wasn’t accessible this time.

“This just isn’t a temporary repair,” Steinberg said. “ his physicians proposed him that this is the top path to a healthy, energetic lifestyle. He and his children were playing but he was in so much pain.

“Now he ’ll possess a healthy life without pain.”

One, Steinberg said, that can include playing golf.

“Entirely,” Steinberg said. “He desires to get out (on the PGA Tour) again.”

Woods’ last public appearance ahead of the operation was Tuesday in Hollister, Missouri, where he pronounced he’s designing his first public golf course. The course will probably be called Payne’s Valley in honor of Missouri native Payne Stewart. Woods is a partner on the project with CEO Johnny Morris and Bass Pro Shops founder.
