I told you all he was done if he was going to insist on swinging the same way.
And this is the proof.
Tiger Woods has undergone yet another surgical procedure on his back.
From Golf.com’s Sean Zak:
Tiger Woods has undergone yet another back surgery, and the rest of his 2017 season has been placed in question.
Woods announced on his website Thursday that another back surgery—his fourth since September, 2014—was necessary to “alleviate ongoing pain in his back and leg.”
According to the release, the minimally invasive and successful surgery will require him to rest for weeks before more therapy and treatments. Patients from similar surgeries are expected to “return to full activity in about six months.”
“The surgery went well, and I’m optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain,” Woods said. “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.”
Wait… is this from the latest surgery, or the 1st, 2nd or 3rd? It seems word for word what he was saying every time he went under the knife.
DJ Rant Alert
I said when I saw his swing setup in Dubai that he was lucky he’d only ended up with back spasms.
In fact, I said he was lucky not to have broken his back swinging that way.
Well… he hasn’t played since that WD in Dubai, and he won’t be playing this year, and likely not ever again, with any regularity.
Wait a minute, DJ …wasn’t Brandel Chamblee saying that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tiger showed up at Augusta this year?
And wasn’t Notah Begay talking just the other day about Tiger likely returning to play in time for the U.S. Open?
“You mean this year’s?”
You have to hand it to TW, he’s got more people carrying his water than the bucket-brigades from the 1900s…
So, we’ll say him play again, I imagine.
There’s always his lifetime exemption to the Masters and his own Hero Challenge tournament… if he can still stand and swing.
Next up… Ceremonial Starter at Augusta…
All because he had to swing with a planted leading heel and restricted hips, even when continuing to do so was breaking his back.
Oh, and his agent, Mark Steinberg, is now as credible as a pyramid scheme architect taking the 5th on the witness stand.
But hey, that’s the Modern Golf Swing, folks!
