Tiger Woods undergoes second laser eye surgery

Tiger Woods was once so nearsighted he said he would be considered legally blind without glasses or contacts. He had Lasik surgery in October 1999 after the Ryder Cup, won the Disney Classic in his first tournament back and has done fairly well since.

He realized this spring it was time to do it again.

"My vision started slipping," Woods said after The Players Championship. "I was getting headaches from squinting all the time."

He said he had laser surgery for the second time the Monday after the Masters.

"Mine stayed the way it should for ... what is it, eight years now?" Woods said. "That's pretty good."

Just as in 1999, Woods won his first tournament after eye surgery when he captured the Wachovia Championship by two shots. But that's where the similarity ends. His victory at Disney in 1999 was the second of six consecutive PGA Tour victories. Woods tied for 37th last week, his worst finish since missing the cut at the U.S. Open last summer.
