The knee surgery is needed to repair a torn ligament in his left knee.

The torn ligament has been there, according to reports, since last July.

A month ago, Woods suffered a double stress fracture of his left tibia when he was getting ready to kick off the PGA Tour.

This forced him to miss some time on the golf course, but still managed to fight through the pain and win the U.S. Open this past weekend.

Back on April 15, Woods went through arthroscopic surgery to clean out cartilage in his left knee.

The hope was that it would be able to get him through the 2008 season, but it wasn’t meant to be.

The surgery that Woods needs makes his 14th major title even more incredible. To think that Woods played 91 holes to win the U.S. Open with an injury that requires surgery is truly something to admire.

He stated “Although I will miss the rest of the 2008 season, I’m thrilled with the fact that last week was such a special tournament.”
