Tiger Woods undergoes surgery on his back again

The American golfer underwent a new operation to treat a microdiscectomy. He will not compete in Farmers Insurance or the Genesis Invitational.


American golfer Tiger Woods has undergone surgery on his back to solve a "microdiscectomy" and intends to return to competition as soon as possible, as reported in a statement on Tuesday.

The 45-year-old Californian player underwent surgery "to relieve pain in the nerves in his back." It is the fifth time that he has had an operation since he began to suffer such discomforts more than six years ago. In his last appearances he always regretted that his performance was not full due to back pain.

This way, Woods will not compete in the Farmers Insurance Open and Genesis Invitational, which are held next month. The American, champion of 15 'majors', emphasized his intention to return to the circuit as soon as he is fully recovered.
