Tiger Woods had arthroscopic knee surgery today on his left knee to repair cartilage damage. This is the second surgery in five years on the same knee. It was performed in Park City, Utah by Dr. Thomas Rosenberg, the same surgeon that operated on the knee in 2002. In 2003, after recovering from the previous surgery, Woods won three of the first four events he entered. One was the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines, the site of this year's US Open.
With a four to six week rehab time it's unlikely Woods will defend his Wachovia Championship or participate in The Players Championship. It would seem that he would return for The Memorial, Jack's event, which is held two weeks before the US Open. Being at Torrey Pines, that means he'll be giving the field two a side instead of his customary four.
