(USA Today) -- Tiger Woods won't play in the Masters for the first time since he made his debut in 1995 as an amateur from Stanford University.

The world's No. 1 player announced Tuesday he will miss the 78th edition of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club after having surgery for a pinched nerve.

It will be the fifth major championship the four-time winner of the green jacket will have missed since 2008.
