Tiger Woods Still Cannot Swing Golf Club After Back Surgery

tiger-woods-british-open-espn_t780Tiger Woods still cannot swing a golf club after his second microdisectomy surgery last month, but he’s not fully backing out of his fall commitments.

In a post on TigerWoods.com, it was announced that Woods will travel to Mexico City for the America’s Golf Cup, an exhibition to promote golf in Latin America but will not compete in the 72-hole best ball tournament or the afternoon teaching clinic. Matt Kuchar, who was scheduled to team with Woods in the event, will “do the heavy lifting, as Tiger cannot swing a golf club yet.”

For all the sponsors, no fear! Woods will still host a breakfast before the tournament begins.

Woods had back surgery on Sept. 16 and is hopeful to return to competitive golf early in 2016.
