In a statement posted to Woodland’s social media accounts, it was confirmed that a “majority of the tumour” was removed.

Woodland is now resting following his surgery.

The 39-year-old announced in August that he had been diagnosed with the lesion earlier this year.

He had initially tried to treat the symptoms with medication before he and his family made the decision to try to remove it with surgery.

In his statement last month, he explained: “After consulting with multiple specialists and discussing with my family, we’ve made the decision that surgery to remove the lesion is the best course of action.

“I’m in good spirits with my family and team by my side and so thankful for the love and support of everyone.”

Woodland has been playing pro golf since 2007 and got his PGA Tour card in 2009.

He’s won four championships since, with the biggest being the 2019 US Open.

Woodland beat Brooks Koepka by three strokes to land his first ever major.

That same year saw Woodland lose one of his baby twins due to complications with wife Gabby’s pregnancy.
