Tiger Woods was hospitalized two days after becoming 2nd place at The Masters tournament. He was put in the hospital to undergo knee surgery. This is supposedly the second surgery on his same left knee in five years! It should take him about a month to recover. He held off the surgery until after the Masters, he responded with this quote:

“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.”

Tiger might miss out on the Players’ Championship, but he should return in time enough to prepare for the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on June 12th.
