(Doctor) Rosenberg said he was confident going into the surgery and that nothing has changed his opinion.
"I am pleased with the results," Rosenberg said in a statement on Woods' website. "There were no surprises during the procedure, and as we have said, with the proper rehabilitation and training, it is highly unlikely that Mr. Woods will have any long-term effects as it relates to his career."
... as usual we are being told information that has lots of wriggle room to it and no specifics anywhere. As I said, we'll know at three months.
This time Rosenberg is hedging a bit:
with the proper rehabilitation and training, it is highly unlikely that Mr. Woods will have any long-term effects as it relates to his career
-highly unlikely - not the 100% that some know-it-alls have been proclaiming including "Stronger than before" which is based upon bench data of ACL graft constructs.
There were no surprises
Since we don't know the latest MRI (pre-op, the one that surely was done and was not released to the media) and we don't know "What was expected" this is a little better than meaningless. Wishing Tiger well, see you in three months on this topic or until we learn whether or not he is being treated for an infection. (also highly unlikely)
Of note the ACL (plus ???) surgery was done nine days after the last day of competition as opposed to the 10-21 days I was quoted as saying with the reservation "when the inflammation was down". Tiger did say that he wanted it as soon as possible and he went one day early - either that or Rosenberg won't change his surgery day even for Tiger (previous Tuesday surgeries, for the slow).
Good. Good Luck and all that, I am tired of this for now.
My best guesses
-A token appearance at the Target, maybe even drinking beer in a cart? (JK) lighten up folks
-Plays the Masters, maybe warms up in Middle East for $(several) million appearance
-Takes up to 18 months to win first "Hoganesque Major" . We're not going to see a slam dunk.
-Quits at 19
A day late, sorry about that. Hey I'm in NYC! I got things to do.
You got a problem with that? :-)
