Tiger Woods undergoes "successful follow-up procedure" after back surgery

Tiger Woods undergoes a "successful follow-up procedure" after back surgery last month, but there is no timetable for his return to the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods has said that he will return to the PGA Tour "as soon as he can" after undergoing a follow-up procedure on his back after surgery last month.

It was revealed in September that Woods had undergone an operation to remove a small disc fragment from his back, surgery that would rule him out for the rest of the year.

However, after what his official website describes as a "successful follow-up procedure", Woods may not return until at least the spring, but no official timetable has been put in place.

The 39-year-old said: "It's one of those things that had to be done. I have an outstanding team of doctors, and I'll be back as soon as I can."

Neurosurgeon Dr Charles Rich added that a full recovery is expected, with Woods potentially eyeing a first appearance ahead of The Masters, which gets underway on April 7.
