Tiger Has Knee Surgery: Out Until U.S. Open?

Posted on April 23, 2008

Golf Digest and other golf news outlets have been reporting that Tiger Woods opted to have arthroscopic knee surgery on his left knee. It has been troubling him since it buckled during the 2007 PGA Championship says Golf Digest.
Although it is true Woods limped at times in tournaments during last year's PGA Tour Playoffs and took a long time getting out of the bunker on the fourth hole during the final round at Augusta National two weeks ago, few suspected anything significant. The circle of people who knew Woods had elected to get his knee "cleaned up" was so small, several of Woods' closest advisors didn't know.
Tiger Woods also reported the news on his website. Tiger will be out for four to six weeks and is expected to return in time for the U.S. Open. Golf Digest also cites experts who say this won't be Tiger's last knee operation - it's something that has always caused trouble for him.
