Tiger Woods has undergone back surgery and announced he would not play again until 2016.

The 14-time major champion underwent successful microdiscectomy surgery to remove a small disc fragment that was pinching a nerve.

Woods underwent similar surgery back in March 2014.

The latest setback makes it difficult to see Woods returning to his imperious best.

However the 39-year-old appeared confident. “This is unfortunate, but these things happen. I’ve been injured before and played again. It won’t be any different this time.”
