SJ - February 22, 2021

Tiger Woods revealed over the weekend that he could miss this year's Masters following back surgery to remove a pressurized disc fragment that was pinching his nerve.

Woods told Jim Nantz during an interview over the weekend, that he's still stiff following the procedure and will need the doctors to clear him before he can return.

From TMZ Sports:

Woods joined Jim Nantz on the CBS broadcast of the final round of the Genesis Open in L.A. on Sunday and revealed the tough news ... saying he's got a ways to go before he can commit to entering the big tourney's field.

"God, I hope so," 45-year-old Woods said when Nantz asked if Tiger would play in the event. "I got to get there first."

Look on the bright side, at least Tiger looks great.  I'm joking, of course, he looks like shit.  The fact that he looks like he hasn't slept in a few days has to have Tiger Stans a little concerned.
