Recovery Time From Microdiscectomy?
By Torleif Sorenson on 4/3/14
Tiger Woods is not the only PGA Tour player to have undergone a microdiscectomy; blogger Geoff Shackelford reminds us that up-and-coming Canadian player Graham DeLaet underwent the same surgery on January 3, 2011 to alleviate back pain from an old hockey injury.

Knowing that every golfer is physically different, DeLaet's comments are especially noteworthy considering that Dr. Ara Suppiah thought that Tiger could be back as soon as the PGA Championship in August. That is just four months from now.
And given Tiger's age (38) and the incredible amount of strain and injuries he and his back have suffered throughout his career, a four-month recovery seems a bit too optimistic to this writer.
