Tiger Woods “hopes” to play in the Masters at Augusta National in April after undergoing a fifth back surgery.
The 45-year-old American had a microdiscectomy to relieve a pressurised disc fragment in January.
Woods recovered from spinal fusion surgery in 2017 to win a 15th major at the 2019 Masters, but his participation in this year’s event – which begins on 8 April – is in the balance.
“I’m feeling fine – I’m a little stiff,” Woods told CBS Television.”I have one more MRI scheduled so we’ll see then if I can start doing more activities. (BBC)
