In the latest announcement at, Woods revealed today that he had a follow-up procedure to his second microdiscectomy in mid-September.
The site stated that this time spent under the knife in Utah was intended to "relieve discomfort." His return to competition remains undetermined. "It's one of those things that had to be done," said Woods. "I have an outstanding team of doctors, and I'll be back as soon as I can." His next public appearance is scheduled to be the Hero World Challenge on Dec. 3-6. Its benefiting charity is the Tiger Woods Foundation. The 14-time major champion will turn 40 years of age two months from today. Unless you have a keeper provision, he doesn't deserve to occupy a spot on any long-range fantasy roster. Oct 30 - 6:40 PM

Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he underwent a microdiscectomy on Wednesday in Utah.

This is the same surgery that the 14-time major champion had on March 31, 2014. "With the upcoming offseason, the decision was made to remove a small disc fragment that was pinching his nerve," said Dr. Charles Rich, the same surgeon who performed the first procedure. "The microsurgery was a complete success, and he was discharged Thursday night." Woods had experienced some soreness in recent weeks and opted to take care of it now. His original schedule included a start at next month's Open, but he'll instead be out until at least 2016. "This is certainly disappointing, but I'm a fighter," Woods said. "I've been told I can make a full recovery, and I have no doubt that I will. ... I appreciate the fans' concern and support. This is unfortunate, but these things happen. I've been injured before and played again. It won't be any different this time." While he'll always be a Life Member of the PGA TOUR, he's fully exempt through 2017-18.

Tiger Woods backed up to an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap at 13-under 267, good for four-way tie for 10th place.

Woods began the day in a three-way tie for second at 13-under, one back of 54-hole leader Jason Gore. Playing in his Wyndham debut and in the penultimate pairing with Scott Brown, Woods was in position for his 80th PGA TOUR title, continuing his chase of Sam Snead's all-time win total of 82, at the tournament where Snead won his last title 50 years ago. It wasn't to be for the 14-time major champion, as he canceled five birdies with two bogeys and a disastrous, triple bogey-7 at the par-4 11th. To his credit, Woods carded four of his birdies over his last six holes, including three consecutive at Nos. 13-15. The 39-year-old netted 20 birdies and one eagle on the week against six bogeys and the aforementioned triple. It's his first top 10 of the season (11 starts) and he concluded the regular season at 178th in the FedExCup standings. He needed a win this week make the Playoffs.

Overnight co-leader Tiger Woods stalled out mid-round but managed to post a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day total of 13-under 197.

Woods began the day 11-under and shared a one-stroke lead with playing partner Tom Hoge. After playing his first 17 holes bogey-free, and 28 straight without a blemish, Woods squared bogey at the last, three-putting from 40'1". The dropped shot means he'll enter the final round two back of Jason Gore, who shot 62 today, and also dropped him into the penultimate pairing for Sunday. Despite the disappointing finish, Woods made several key par putts on his round, including a 24-footer at the 10th and four more between four and six feet on his inward half. The par putt at the last was from 5'11", which rimmed out on the right. The 39-year-old managed three circles on the card at Nos. 1 and 5, and not again until the par-3 16th. Thru three rounds, he's a cumulative 5.818 in strokes gained: putting (ranked eighth) but a paltry 0.197 on today's loop, just his third career at Sedgefield CC. The 79-time TOUR winner split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation.

Tiger Woods backed up his opening 64 at the Wyndham Championship with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round to post 11-under 129 at the break, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Tom Hoge.

The day started poorly for Woods, who three-putted the par-4 first hole from just inside 24 feet, but he battled back as he's done so many times before. Overall, he split eight (of 14) fairways and stood over 15 opportunities to break par, doing so six times, including an eagle from 10'5" at the par-5 15th hole. His longest conversion dropped for birdie from 25'7" at the par-4 13th. When he signed his card, Woods co-led the field with 12 birdies, but ranked just T28 in greens in regulation (29). That's the kind of ratio that wins shootouts.

Tiger Woods authored a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

Sharp stuff in his debut at Sedgefield Country Club, but imagine what he would have done to the place in his prime. Nevertheless, he's only two strokes off the clubhouse lead after what was his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a second-round 61 at the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods hit 14 greens in regulation on the day for which he set the tone with a hole-out for birdie from off the green 18 yards away at the par-4 10th. He bogeyed the par-4 11th, but responded with six more birdies, including a pair from 10-12 feet. He even salvaged par twice from the same range. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 2.662. It would have been even higher if not for a whiff for birdie from inside five feet at the par-4 sixth.

Tiger Woods will lace it up for this week's Wyndham Championship.

This was news on Friday night, of course, but we always wait until the published field reflects additions and subtractions. Indeed, Woods was added this morning, but his agent, Mark Steinberg, confirmed to Golf Channel that his client will honor the verbal commitment. Woods is in as a late entry since he wasn't included in the published field, which reflects who were in at the commitment deadline (5:00 p.m. ET on Friday). This will mark the 14-time major champion's debut at Sedgefield Country Club.

Tournament host Tiger Woods wrapped his sixth playing of the Quicken Loans National with a 3-under-par 32-36=68 to conclude at 8-under 276, currently T19 with play still in progress.

The two-time Quicken Loans champion was T5 after 36 holes after opening 8-under 68-66. He played his final 36 in even-par. Making just his ninth start of the season, Woods' effort on Sunday might be enough to log his second top-25 finish of the season (T17, Masters). After hitting just seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation on Saturday, Woods split 11 fairways on Sunday and hit 15 greens, registering 1.733 putts per GIR. In total, the 39-year-old circled 20 birdies on the week and squared 10 bogeys and one double. At No. 266 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Woods needed to win this week to crack the field at next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, which he's won eight times on 15 career starts. Since it became a WGC event in 1999, Woods had played in every edition with the exception of 2008.

Tiger Woods has risen into a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Quicken Loans National with a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round.

With a 3-under 68 on Thursday, the 39-year-old tournament host is 8-under 134 at the midpoint. He opened the tournament with bogeys on three of his first four holes, but has since rattled in a field-high 12 (at the time he signed today's card). Today's set of six included conversions from 10'6", 19'10" and a fist-bumping-inducing 35'9" at Nos. 18, 4 and 8, respectively. Overall, Woods has striped 18 (of 28) fairways and landed 28 greens in regulation. With iron play the leading factor of success, at least early at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, it's no surprise that his aggregate 4.778 in strokes gained: tee-to-green is outpacing his aggregate 1.226 in strokes gained: putting. But above all of that, it's refreshing to see the former top-ranked golfer in the world capitalize on scorable conditions. His game will no doubt be tested on the weekend.

The opening round of the Quicken Loans National was halted by inclement weather at 12:50 p.m. ET. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:25 p.m. Tee times for the remainder of the day have been delayed 90 minutes.

Tournament host Tiger Woods was on the first tee with playing partners Bill Haas and Nick Watney when the horn sounded. They were scheduled to begin at 12:55 p.m. The delay isn't too surprising as the threat for rain and thunderstorms was most prevalent beginning this afternoon. A line of storms is sweeping through the area right now and it's growing with the midday heating. Golfers were removed from the course as a precaution.
Jul 30 - 12:57 PM

The second round of The 144th Open Championship is scheduled to resume at 5:00 p.m. local time at St. Andrews. UPDATE: The restart has been shifted to 5:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.

That's now 12:30 p.m. ET in the U.S. and there's no guarantee that more golf will be played today. As a result of the extended delay due to wind, the R&A has confirmed that the final round will be completed on Monday for just the second time in history (1988). The entire third round will be contested on Sunday. Three-time Open champion Tiger Woods is 1-over-par through 12 holes and 5-over through 30. The current cut line is at even-par 144, so he'd need to score in a fashion he hasn't flashed in a long time just to earn a tee time in the third round.

Tiger Woods authored a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude his second appearance (MC, 2012) at 7-under 273, currently T32 with play still in progress.

It's not a win, or a top-25 finish for that matter, but it's bogey-free, the first such occurrence for Woods since round one of the 2013 Barclays, 55 competitive rounds ago. He began the day at 4-under (T47) and seven off the pace. With the uncertain state of the 39-year-old's game, too far back to contend. On his round, Woods circled three birdies at Nos. 4, 6 and 12, found the short grass a surprising 12 (of 14) times and peppered 15 greens in regulation. At last check he was a cumulative 4.206 strokes gained: tee-to-green, ranked 27th in that category for the tournament, but -1.031 in strokes gained: putting, 53rd in the field for that stat. His three par breakers aside, he had several other realistic scoring opportunities, missing five birdie putts from inside 15 feet. Woods' next start is in two weeks at the 144th Open Championship at St. Andrews, where he's won twice.
Jul 5 - 2:02 PM

Tiger Woods signed for a 4-under-par 34-32=66 following his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

You read that right. It's his lowest round on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 66 at Trump National Doral in early March of 2014. Woods split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens at The Old White TPC today. He wrangled seven birdies, including three straight to conclude the round, the latter two falling from 18'3" and 19'1" at Nos. 8 and 9, respectively. Woods also connected from 13'5" at the par-4 second. In terms of the negative, he rinsed his tee ball en route to a bogey at the par-5 17th hole, and then airmailed the green with a bunker shot at the par-4 sixth where he's eventually pencil a 6, but at last check, the 14-time major champion ranked second in strokes gained: putting at 2.983. Of course, all bets remain off for the second round, but this is the kind of golf course that rewards confident putters. If he can continue to avoid trouble, and that remains a huge if, Woods might be relevant entering the weekend. He's four shots off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 2 - 3:10 PM

At 16-over-par 80-76=156, Tiger Woods missed the cut at the 115th U.S. Open by 11 strokes.

His aggregate in the opener is his highest in 68 rounds as a professional in this championship. Overall, he split 16 (of 28) fairways and hit 21 greens but needed a ridiculous 73 putts. His scorecards featured three birdies, 16 bogeys and a triple. This is his second MC of the season, tying a career high in a single season. Other notables that failed to survive include: 146--defending champ Martin Kaymer; Charley Hoffman; Bill Haas; Cody Gribble (opened with 68) ... 147--Bubba Watson; Hunter Mahan; local resident Michael Putnam ... 148--two-time champ Retief Goosen; 2010 champ Graeme McDowell ... 149--two-time champ Lee Janzen; local favorite Ryan Moore; Danny Willett ... 151--Jamie Donaldson ... 154--Rickie Fowler ... 156--2009 champ Lucas Glover ... 157--Darren Clarke.

Tiger Woods ballooned to a 13-over-par 42-43=85 in today's third round of the Memorial and his 12-over 228 total has him in 71st place of 71 golfers that made the cut.

Woods, a five-time champion of the Memorial Tournament, began the day at 1-under having made the cut on the number with rounds of 73-70. He was in the third tee time off this morning, paired with PGA TOUR rookie Zac Blair, who shot 2-under 70. On his round, Woods found seven (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, recording an astonishing -10.171 strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. The 39-year-old circled a lone birdie against six bogeys, two doubles and a quadruple bogey-8 at the last to put a stamp on his career-worse round, three worse than his prior-worst total of 82, which he shot at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open.
