AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Masters chairman Billy Payne says Tiger Woods has to be immobilized for two weeks after his back surgery.

Woods is missing the Masters for the first time in his career after back surgery March 31 to relieve a pinched nerve.

He has been at every Champions Dinner since winning the first of his four green jackets in 1997. Payne was asked Wednesday if he thought Woods might come to the dinner even though he's not playing.

Payne says Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, told him that Woods has to be "very still" for at least a couple of weeks.

Woods has said he will not be able to return to golf until sometime this summer.

There were 30 Masters champions at the Tuesday night dinner.
