Tiger Woods set for knee surgery

On Tuesday night, Tiger Woods announced a slight detour in his 2008 season: knee surgery.

Two days after a failed campaign to capture another green jacket, Tiger Woods announced on his website, "I made the decision to deal with the pain and schedule the surgery for after the Masters. The upside is that I have been through this process before and know how to handle it. I look forward to working through the rehabilitation process and getting back to action as quickly as I can."

Woods believes he will be back in action in 4-6 weeks, which means his next major, most likely, will be the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, near Woods' childhood home.

The Golf Channel reports, through Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg of IMG, that “Tiger has been experiencing pain in his knee since the middle of last year, and when he had it looked at by his doctors, arthroscopic surgery was recommended." Steinberg continued, “Tiger has played through the pain in the past, but knew it would be better for him to have the procedure done as early as possible.”
