The 14-time major champion underwent successful microdiscectomy surgery to remove a small disc fragment that was pinching a nerve.
Woods underwent similar surgery back in March 2014.

However the 39-year-old appeared confident. “This is unfortunate, but these things happen. I’ve been injured before and played again. It won’t be any different this time.”
