Dear Friends and Fans,
I wanted to let you all know why I have not been competing this year. All the years of playing golf and walking have finally taken a toll on my susceptible hips. Throughout the past years I have seen numerous doctors to determine why my hips are in pain. This fall I found a doctor who was able to determine the root of my problem. Labral tear (A-Rod and I have a lot in common, just kidding), muscle rupture, muscle tear, and bone spurs. I had surgery in mid February to repair the issues on the first hip. Once this hip is strong enough I will undergo surgery on the other hip. I'm anticipating sometime in mid May. Recovery from that point will be six months before I can swing a club. My goal is to be back on Tour in 2010. This year will be filled with physical therapy and rehab in order to get my body and hips as strong possible.
Thanks to all of you who have shared your concerns. Your notes and emails have meant a lot to me. See you in 2010.
