Woods, another surgery… It is unclear whether he will return this year

Tiger Woods (USA), who withdrew스포츠토토 due to an injury during the Masters tournament, was put on the operating table again.

Woods said on his Twitter on the 20th (Korean time) that he had undergone surgery to treat post-traumatic arthritis caused by a previous ankle fracture. The surgery was performed at the HSS Sports Medicine Institute in New York. The attending physician is Dr. Martin O’Malley.

This injury is the aftermath of a vehicle rollover accident that occurred in February 2021. At the time, Woods suffered serious injuries that broke both legs, and numerous screws and iron rods were inserted to fix the bones in his right foot and ankle. It took him a year to recover.

Afterwards, he competed in 5 tournaments and completed 72 holes twice, but suffered from aftereffects throughout. In May of last year, while playing the US Professional Golf (PGA) Championship, a screw pierced through the skin and withdrew, and in the Masters tournament, which opened on the 7th, he gave up due to aggravated injury after completing 7 holes in the 3rd round on the 3rd day. .

Woods’ manager Mark Steinberg nailed it in an interview with the Associated Press, saying, “There is no schedule for Woods’ return yet.” Golf Week, an American golf media outlet, also predicted, “After surgery, you will need to wear a cast for at least three months, and you will spend a lot of time for rehabilitation and treatment after that.” Initially, Woods was scheduled to participate in the PGA Championship in May and the US Open in June, but it was virtually canceled due to this surgery. Mark Steinberg said, “Woods is currently taking a break,” and “the first goal is to recover and return to a fun routine.”

Meanwhile, Woods’ exclusive caddy, Joe LaCava, appeared as Steve Stricker (USA)’s ‘Alba’ caddy at TPC Louisiana (par 71, 7,213 yards) in Avondale, Louisiana, USA on the 20th. The two had a practice round together for the PGA Tour Zurich Classic that day. La Cava, who usually doesn’t carry other players’ bags, seems to have responded to the request of Stricker, who has a strong friendship with Woods, this time.
