The most dominant player in the history of golf, as well as a merciless tiger on the rolling green fields and wooded plains has had his much-hyped comeback ruined and his career heading over a cliff due to persistent back spasms.
He has since had three major back operations, but the issue refuses to get resolved. The Masters takes place in April and in all probability, Tiger Woods will be conspicuosly absent, barring a miracle.
Just last week, he was forced to withdraw from the Dubai Desert Classic after just one misfiring round owing to the same issue. He was compelled to take considerable time off to recover, recuperate and nurse his aching back which seems really determined to ruin his life and career.
He said, “My doctors have advised me not to play the next two weeks, to continue my treatment and to let my back calm down.
“This is not what I was hoping for or expecting.
“I am extremely disappointed to miss the Genesis Open, a tournament that benefits my foundation, and the Honda Classic, my hometown event.
“I would like to thank Genesis for their support, and I know we will have an outstanding week.
“There were a lot of times I didn’t think I was going to make it back. It was tough, it was more than brutal.
“There have been plenty of times when I thought I would never play the game again at the elite level,” Wood said.
“It was tough, it was more than brutal. There were times I needed help just to get out of bed.
“I feel good, not great. I don’t think I will ever feel great because it’s three back surgeries, four knee operations.
“I’m always going to be a little bit sore. As long as I can function, I’m fine with that.”
