Tiger Woods undergoes fifth back surgery; will miss Farmers and Genesis

Published

on

Tiger Woods has announced that he will delay his start to 2021 after undergoing a microdiscectomy procedure to remove a pressurized disc fragment that was pinching a nerve.

Woods’ doctor and team have revealed that the surgery was successful and that the 45-year-old is expected to make a full recovery.

As a result of the surgery, Woods will not compete at either the Farmers Insurance Open or the Genesis Invitational but still plans on serving as Tournament host at the event from Riviera.

Per the statement, the operation was brought on by discomfort Woods felt following the PNC Championship in December.

“I look forward to begin training and am focused on getting back out on tour” – Tiger Woods

This operation marks the fifth operation Woods has had on his back, almost four years after undergoing spinal-fusion surgery.

    It was a great run but admit it: Jack Nicklaus will be GOAT, forever; so please retire

    I wish him well and would love to see him back, but he must surely be thinking about calling it a day
    He has nothing left to prove, absolutely nothing

Mini-tour player records a 57…with a bogey

Published

on

59’s don’t come around too often. There have only been 11 of them in PGA Tour history. 58’s? Even more rare. Only one of those. 57s? Let’s start with zero in official PGA Tour history.

Well, David Carey did apparently shoot a 57 in 2019 on the “Alps Tour,” but point being, anytime someone goes this low, it immediately has our attention.

What we saw yesterday from Jharad Hack at Las Vegas Golf Club was nothing short of unbelievable. We needed to see the scorecard to believe it.

Since Las Vegas Golf Club plays as a par 72, that is a whopping 15 under par, with a grand total of 26 strokes on the front nine! Did we mention he made a bogey?

Rory McIlroy reveals his favorite Olympic sport, and it’s not what we were expecting

Published

on

Rory McIlroy has officially caught Olympic fever. After previously mentioning he wasn’t particularly looking forward to competing in Tokyo, McIlroy said after his Friday round that he’s “already looking forward to Paris” in 2024.

It’s not just golf that has Rory excited either. When discussing the disappointment of how Olympians are unable to watch other sports in person, the four-time major champion gave an extremely surprising answer for the sport he wishes he could experience in person the most.

“The one thing that’s on tonight that I’ve always wanted to go and see is dressage. Always. It’s mesmerizing and it’s on tonight at like 7:30. I’ll watch it on TV.”

If you are unaware what dressage actually is, you’re not alone.

According to Wikipedia, “Dressage is a form of horse riding performed in exhibition and competition,” where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”

I’m not sure if that clears anything up, but if Rory is intrigued, maybe we’ll give it a chance.

Tony Romo has the coolest golf cart you’ll ever see

Published

on

With temperatures floating above 100 degrees this week in Tyler, Texas, home of the Texas State Open, Tony Romo certainly came prepared.

That’s right, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback showed up with an air-conditioned golf cart with sliding doors.

Unfortunately, it may not have given him the leg up that he was hoping for, as Romo opened with a one-over-par 71, good for 86th place after round one.

At least he outlasted the other former NFL standout in the field, as Johnny Manziel’s first round 79 was certainly not as impressive. With a projected cut of one-under par, Romo certainly stands a decent chance to ride into the weekend in cooler temperatures.
