Tiger Woods is now off the crutches and wearing a knee brace. He hopes to start rehabbing soon, but has no definite date scheduled for him to return to competition.
Apparently Tiger has been playing in pain and knew he’d have the knee surgery for a couple of months. He was going to have the surgery after Augusta whether or not he won at The Masters. Tiger did not attribute his loss at The Masters to his knee:
“I’ve definitely been playing in pain, but that’s not why I didn’t win at Augusta.”
