Carson Daly had a second surgery on his back

The Voice host Carson Daly had a second surgery on his back to correct damage from an accident years ago. He’s lived with pain for years. Apparently, golfer Tiger Woods had the same surgery. “On Tuesday morning I underwent successful ALIF back surgery. (Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion) at L5 S1,” Carson wrote on Instagram. “It’s the same operation my SoCal junior golfing buddy @Tigerwoods had in 2017. We’re basically the same person. I want to thank @AndrewHechtMD & his incredible team @MountSinaiNYC for all the selfless miracles they perform daily for so many in need. I’m very grateful. Next up, the road to recovery. Also, like Tiger I plan on winning the Master’s in exactly 2 yrs.”
