Tiger Woods had a second microdiscectomy surgery on his back this week and will be sidelined the rest of the year

Woods said Friday on his website that he had surgery Wednesday in Park City, Utah.

”This is certainly disappointing, but I’m a fighter.

I’ve been told I can make a full recovery, and I have no doubt that

I will.” Dr. Charles Rich performed the operation and also the first

procedure in March 2014.

”With the upcoming offseason, the decision was made to

remove a small disc fragment that was pinching his nerve. The

microsurgery was a complete success, and he was discharged Thursday

night.” Rich says.

Winless this season, Woods failed to qualify for the PGA Tour’s

FedEx Cup playoffs. He’s had committed to play in the

season-opening Frys.com Open on Oct. 15-18 at Silverado in

California, but will miss that tournament along with the

Bridgestone America’s Golf Cup in Mexico City and his own Hero

World Challenge in the Bahamas.
