Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

JUPITER, Fla. - Tiger Woods said he had fu­sion surgery on his back be­cause he could no longer tol­er­ate the pain, and that he wants to get back on the PGA Tour. “I haven’t felt this good in years,” he said Wed­nes­day in an up­date on his web­site . Woods had the fu­sion surgery on April — his fourth surgery on his back dat­ing to the spring of 2014 — and said it pro­vided “in­stant nerve re­lief.”

The surgery meant miss­ing all the ma­jors for the sec­ond straight year. Woods said he did ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to get ready for the Mas­ters and was “ready to go.” He said it was sim­i­lar to the 2008 U.S. Open, which he won on a shat­tered left leg, be­cause the pain was af­ter he made con­tact.
