or birdie to end two behin

Tiger Woods chose surgery to heal his ailing back over a quest for another green jacket, announcing Tuesday that he will miss the Masters for the first time in his career. Woods said on his website that he had surgery Monday in Utah for a pinched nerve that had been hurting him for several months, knowing the surgery would keep him from Augusta National next week for the first time since he was a senior in high school. The No. 1 player in the world is a four-time Masters champion. "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. "Id like to express my disappointment to the Augusta National membership, staff, volunteers and patrons that I will not be at the Masters. "Its a week thats very special to me," he said. "It also looks like Ill be forced to miss several upcoming tournaments to focus on my rehabilitation and getting healthy." The Masters gets the highest television ratings of any golf tournament, and Woods commands most of the attention, even though he last won a green jacket in 2005. He won his first Masters in 1997 when he set 20 records, from youngest Masters champion at 21 to his 12-shot margin of victory. "I know Tiger has been working very hard to return to form, and as I have said many times, Tiger has a lot of years of good golf ahead of him," Jack Nicklaus said. "I hate to see him robbed of some of that time by injury. But we all know he is doing what is in the best interest of his health and future. I wish him well on a speedy recovery." Nicklaus played 154 straight majors for which he was eligible until he missed the 1998 British Open because of an ailing left hip that he had replaced a year later. Nicklaus rarely had injury problems in compiling 18 professional majors, the record that Woods wants. Woods has been stuck on 14 majors for six years. Woods has had four surgeries on his left knee, and now his biggest concern is his back. He has been coping with back issues since last summer: a twinge in the final round of the PGA Championship and spasms in the final round of The Barclays that caused him to fall to his knees. Then, they returned with alarming regularity recently in Florida. He withdrew after 13 holes in the final round of the Honda Classic with what he described as lower back pain and spasms. Woods shot the highest final round of his career at Doral a week later when he said his back flared up again in the final round. He skipped the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he was the two-time defending champion, to rest his back and do everything possible to be at Augusta National next week. "Tiger was gracious in keeping us updated of his condition and making us aware of his decision," Augusta National chairman Billy Payne said. "We wholeheartedly offered our best wishes for his immediate and long-term recovery." Woods said he had a microdiscectomy for the pinched nerve, performed by neurosurgeon Charles Rich. A microdiscectomy is a type of minimally invasive spine surgery to relieve pressure and pain caused by a herniated disc. Operating through a small incision in the lower back, surgeons remove small disc fragments that are pressing against spinal nerves. Recovery can take several weeks and doctors typically advise against bending and twisting the back until patients are completely healed "This is frustrating," Woods said. "But its something my doctors advised me to do for my immediate and long-term health." His website said repeating the motion of a golf swing can cause problems with a pinched nerve, and that the injury could have become worse if he had continued to play. Woods said he hopes to return to golf this summer, though he could not say when. Its possible he could at least start chipping and putting in three weeks. He will have to wait until the U.S. Open -- maybe longer -- to resume his quest to match Nicklaus in the majors. Woods won his 14th major at the 2008 U.S. Open on a badly injured left leg that required season-ending surgery two days after his playoff win at Torrey Pines. He has not won another major since then. This would have been the 20th straight Masters for Woods, dating to 1995 when he tied for 41st as the U.S. Amateur champion. He missed the British Open and PGA Championship in 2008 after knee surgery, and the U.S. Open and British Open in 2011 to heal more injuries in his left leg. But he never missed the Masters, even after the scandal in his personal life at the end of 2009. Woods had been out of golf for nearly five months dealing with a car crash into a fire hydrant, revelations of multiple extramarital affairs and 45 days in a Mississippi clinic when he returned to Augusta National under intense scrutiny. He tied for fourth. Even though he hasnt won the Masters in nine years, he had only finished out of the top 10 one time, in 2012. Woods has 79 career wins on the PGA Tour, three short of the record held by Sam Snead. He already was off to the worst start of his career. "Its tough right now, but Im absolutely optimistic about the future," Woods said. "There are a couple (of) records by two outstanding individuals and players that I hope one day to break. As Ive said many times, Sam and Jack reached their milestones over an entire career. I plan to have a lot of years left in mine." Elias Lindholm Jersey .

Chris Terry Jersey . -- Its been 21 years since Joe Gibbs Racing celebrated its only Daytona 500 victory.Honolulu, HI ( - Defending champion Jimmy Walker fired an 8- under 62 on Saturday to take a 2-stroke lead after three rounds of the Sony Open. Walker shot a 30 on the back nine, making six birdies and one bogey to build a 2-shot lead over Matt Kuchar heading into the final round at Waialae Country Club. He stands at 16-under 195 and will try to become the first back-to-back winner of the event since Ernie Els in 2003-04. Kuchar, who shared the 36-hole lead on Friday with Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson, birdied two of his last three holes Saturday. Kuchar carded a 2-under 68 to end three rounds at minus-14. He has finished in the top 10 at this event in three of the past four years. Brian Harman (64) and Troy Merritt (67) were one shot further back at 13-under 197 and Thomas slipped into a tie for fifth place with Tim Clark (68) at 198 after shooting a 70. Max Homa (63) was at 199 and Simpson fell into an 11-way tie for eighth at minus-10 after making three bogeys and just one birdie in a 72. Walker stumbled out of the gate as he found water off the tee at the second. That led to a bogey, which dropped him to minus-7. He quickly erased that mistake as he holed out for birdie from off the third green. The three-time winner last season birdied the sixth from 26 feet out. Walker converted back-to-back birdies at eight and nine en route to making the turn at minus-11. Walker poured in a 22-footer for birdie on No. 10 to make it three in a row. After another birdie at the 12th, Walker kicked off a hot stretch of golf with a 6-foot birdie effort on the 14th. He nearly holed his approach at the 15th, but settled for a tap-in birdie. Walker drained a 30-foot putt at 16 to cap a run of three consecutive birdies. He failed to save par from a greenside bunker at the par-3 17th, but Walker coonverted a 9-foot birdie effort on the 18th to grab a 2-shot lead after three rounds.dddddddddddd I think when I tapped that one in on 15, I started thinking, wow, that feels like a lot of one-putts in a row, said Walker, who needed just 22 putts in his third round as he 1-putted his final 11 holes. Ive always enjoyed coming here. I think this is one of the best golf courses we play. It shows what a good golf course is, and what it doesnt have to be. Kuchar had an up-and-down front nine. After three pars to open his day, he was unable to save par from a bunker on the par-3 fourth. Kuchar bounced back with a birdie on the sixth, but he 3-putted for bogey on the seventh to dip to minus-11. The 36-year-old birdied the ninth to move back to even-par for his round. He started the back nine with six pars in a row. Kuchar stuffed his approach at the 16th inside a foot and he kicked that in for birdie. After a par at 17, Kuchars second to the par-5 closing hole missed the green. His chip shot narrowly missed going in and Kuchar tapped in for birdie to end two behind Walker. It was kind of slow and steady. I actually felt like I hit the ball pretty well today, and the kind of 10- to 15- to 20-footers that I saw a lot go in the first two days seemed to come up short today, admitted Kuchar. It seemed like our whole group was just coming up a little bit short, so not a whole lot other than that to report. NOTES: Walker is 54-under par in his last 11 competitive rounds in Hawaii ... Walker has the 54-hole lead for the third time in his career, and he won one of the previous two times he was in that position ... With the large cut of 85 players, 15 players missed the secondary cut after round three ... Among those 15 were former U.S. Open winner Lucas Glover, amateur Kyle Suppa and Hideki Matsuyama.
