Tiger Woods, other tournaments in doubt

Tiger Woods remains out of the 2020-21 PGA Tour as he recovers from yet another back surgery. Nobody knows when he will be back. Tiger could return for the World Golf Championship-Mexico City (Feb. 25-28) or for the Arnold Palmer Invitational (March 4-7).

The Masters will be in April 8-11. He recently had a microdiscectomy to remove a pressurized disc fragment that gave him nerve pain during last month’s PNC Championship. "I look forward to begin training and am focused on getting back out on Tour", Tiger Woods said in the statement in which his doctors deemed the operation successful and predicted a full recovery.
