Tiger Woods to Miss Masters Tournament Following Back Surgery

Tiger Woods will miss the Masters Tournament for the first time in his career this year because he is recovering from back surgery. Tiger says he had a successful microdiscectomy for a pinched nerve that has been hurting him over the past few months. Recovery from the surgery requires several weeks of rest.

In a statement on tigerwoods.com, Tiger says, "After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided, in consultation with my doctors, to have this procedure done. I'd like to express my disappointment to the Augusta National membership, staff, volunteers and patrons that I will not be at the Masters. It's a week that's very special to me. It also looks like I'll be forced to miss several upcoming tournaments to focus on my rehabilitation and getting healthy. I'd also like to thank the fans for their support and concern. It's very kind and greatly appreciated. This is frustrating, but it's something my doctors advised me to do for my immediate and long-term health."

Jack Nicklaus Launches Golf Ball Line

Jack Nicklaus golf balls


Jack Nicklaus is introducing his own line of golf balls. The collection features three golf balls: Nicklaus Black, Nicklaus Blue, and Nicklaus White. The balls were designed to accommodate three skill levels of player. The golf balls are initially being sold at nicklaus.com. They will also be sold in the shops at 200 Nicklaus Design courses. A percentage from every golf ball sold in the shops will be donated to the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation.

Jack Nicklaus said in a statement, "We all know that the game of golf can be challenging enough, so we are trying to simplify the decision-making process of selecting the right golf ball and at the same time provide consumers the highest-quality golf balls and at a price that encourages charitable support. By buying these balls, players will get the added benefit of supporting these wonderful charities that help children in need as well as the families that dearly love them. The idea of creating three balls corresponds to the teeing areas golfers typically play. The Nicklaus White ball is designed for the players who might typically play the forward or white tees. Nicklaus Blue is designed for players who would typically play the middle or blue tees. And, finally, Nicklaus Black is designed for the single-digit or better golfer who generally plays from the back tees."

Golf Cart Hovercraft


ABC News reports that the first two BW1 Hovercraft golf crafts have been purchased by Windy Knoll Golf Club, a golf club in Springfield, Ohio. The BW1, created by Neoteric Hovercraft, first debuted in a viral video with Bubba Watson and Oakley. The hovercraft golf carts cost $58,000. Engadget says they are powered by 65-hp twin-cylinder Hirth engines. They leave a much smaller footprint on a course than a regular golf cart and can travel over water. The hovercraft golf cart is also being sold here on Hammacher Schlemmer for $58,000.

Here is the original viral video and the video from ABC News of the BW1 in operation at Windy Knoll Golf Club. ABC News says the course will charge $175 for one round with the hovercraft and a pilot. Take a look:
