Tiger Woods Will Miss the Masters

Unless this is a very bad April Fools joke, Tiger Woods announced on his website Tuesday that he will miss the Masters after having a successful surgery for a pinched nerve. "After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided, in consultation with my doctors, to have this procedure done," Woods said. The back injury has been nagging him for months and contributed to speculation he might miss the tournament.
