Tiger Woods out
again for knee surgery
best golfer in the world, Tiger Woods, will miss the rest of the
season to undergo a knee surgery, the top player disclosed on
his website. The U.S. Open winner will have another surgery on
his injured left knee and will miss the Open at Royal Birkdale,
the Ryder Cup and USPGA Championship. "It was important to me
that I disclose my condition publicly at an appropriate time.
Now, it is clear that the right thing to do is listen to my
doctors, follow though with this surgery, and focus my attention
on rehabilitating my knee. Although I will miss the rest of the
2008 season, I'm thrilled with the fact that last week was such
a special tournament," Tiger Woods posted on his website.
The upcoming surgery will be the fourth on his left knee. The
last one was on 15 April to clean out cartilage in his left
knee, which sidelined the world's No.1 until the U.S. Open,
which he won in a sudden-death playoff against Rocco Mediate.
