STOCKHOLM (AP) - Jesper Parnevik says he will likely have to quit golf because of a broken vertebrae in his lower back.

Parnevik, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour, told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet that doctors say he needs to undergo joint fusion surgery, "which means I can't play anymore."

The paper reported Wednesday that Parnevik had emergency back
surgery on Monday that would keep him from playing for at least a
month. The 44-year-old Swedish golfer says a more advanced operation that could risk his career "seems inevitable."
