Tiger Woods May Have Played His Last Round Of Competitive Golf As He Reveals Fourth Back Surgery

Tiger Woods has been out of action for 10 weeks now after pulling out early of one of his first starts after returning from a 15-month absence.

It’s been four years, in truth, since the American has been anywhere near his best. In 2013, Big Cat won five times on the PGA Tour and was named the Player of the Year for the 11th time.

Some had hoped he would compete at the US Open this year but such dreams have quickly been dashed with the news today that Tiger has once again gone under the knife for his fourth back surgery in 40 months.

The operation was performed to alleviate pain in his lower back and legs. A statement from Woods read:

“The surgery went well, and I’m optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain.

“When healed, I look forward to getting back to a normal life, playing with my kids, competing in professional golf and living without the pain I have been battling so long.”

However, fans of his are fearing the worst considering the battering his body has taken. Unfortunately, were he to announce tomorrow he had retired, nobody would be surprised.
