Tiger Woods To Miss Torrey Pines, Riviera After Fifth Back Surgery

Tiger Woods is on the mend.

The PGA star recently underwent his fifth back surgery to remove a “pressurized disc fragment” which was causing him discomfort after the PNC Championship.

It is unknown when Woods officially will return to golf.

In a statement on the 45-year-old’s Twitter account, however, it was revealed Woods will miss both the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines later this month and The Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in February.

Woods’ last procedure came in 2017 when he underwent a spinal infusion. He would later return and win the 2019 Masters, as well as two other PGA Tour events.
