Jacobsen out for several months after surgery
Golfer Peter Jacobsen had arthroscopic hip surgery on Tuesday in Florida to repair a bone spur, and was expected to miss six to eight weeks on both the PGA and Champions tours.
Jacobsen, a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour, underwent the three-hour procedure in Fort Lauderdale, the Oregon-based Peter Jacobsen Productions, Inc. said.
The surgery repaired a torn labrum on his left hip that developed into a bone spur. He had the same procedure in May 2001.
``This has been a very exciting year for me thus far. I'm disappointed that I'm faced with this injury and will not be able to play,'' Jacobsen said through his company. ``But I'm optimistic that I will have a quick recovery and be back in competition soon.''
Jacobsen hopes to return for the Bayer Advantage Celebrity Pro-Am, a Champions Tour event in Kansas City, Missouri from June 7-14.
The 50-year-old Jacobsen was named the PGA Tour's comeback player of the year for 2003 after he won the Greater Hartford Open.
