Update on Tiger Woods’ recovery, return prospects

“Deeply sorry” that he can’t compete, Tiger Woods still plans to travel to Mexico City for the October 22-25 Bridgestone America’s Golf Cup. The former World No. 1 is slated to meet with government officials and conduct a clinic with Matt Kuchar, who was to be his partner in the 72-hole best-ball competition. However, as a release on Woods’ website states, “Kuchar will do the heavy lifting, as Tiger cannot swing a golf club yet.” Woods is recovering from a second microdiscectomy operation in as many years, as he went under the knife September 16 in Utah. Woods’ previous back surgery, just ahead of the Masters 2014, yielded a three-month recovery time, for what it’s worth. And we likely all agree due to the issues with weakness and instability in the region in his post-surgery starts, he came back to soon. Thus, it’s not surprising that in the wake of a surgery that has an average recovery time of 4 ½ months, Woods won’t be swinging a golf club less than a month-and-a-half from the date of his surgery. The golfer is (apparently) a big proponent of golf in Latin America, according to another portion of the release: “Woods is a strong supporter of the tournament, which is striving to promote golf in Latin America, and is very appreciative of the support and understanding he has received from all involved. He has already committed to play in the event in 2016, 2017 and 2018.” Looking ahead to 2016, the Farmers Insurance Open is the week of January 25th, a little more than four months from the date of his surgery. Considering that Woods has won eight times at the California track, you’d imagine that’s the return date he’s shooting for.
