Tiger Woods Undergoes Successful Ankle Surgery: Remainder of Season In Doubt

Tiger Woods underwent ankle surgery on April 19th, 2023 to address lingering issues from his prior fracture. The 15-time major champion released the news via Twitter on Wednesday.

Woods withdrew from the Masters’ Tournament during the rain-soaked third round a week and a half ago. Woods did however make the cut for the 23rd consecutive year. The pain was evident to onlookers, as the weather and course conditions weren’t kind to his body.

Woods underwent what was referred to as a successful surgery on Wednesday. It was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley at HSS Sports Medicine Institute in New York City. Now, the 47-year-old will begin the rehab process. His next appearance was expected to be at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill in May. This recent surgery though almost certainly ends that possibility. It’s unlikely Tiger Woods will be ready to play competitive golf so soon or for the remainder of the 2023 season.

Since his car accident in 2021, Woods has played in just four major championships. He’s only finished one of them – last year’s Masters where he ended 47th in the field. Tiger was asked about his future prior to this year’s Masters Tournament. Woods responded, “Yeah, I don’t know how many more I have in me. So just to be able to appreciate the time that I have here and cherish the memories … it’s really neat to be able to come here and play this golf course and see all the past champions. I know more guys on the Champions tour than I do the regular tour.”

It remains to be seen how much more of Tiger Woods we’ll get on the PGA Tour. We sure hope to watch him out there again as soon as he’s healthy enough.
