Unless of course his surgery recovery would have prevented him from going, but all of you guys in the injury thread that have had the same surgery made it sound like you were doing backwards hand flips 4 days afterward, so I don't know.
I'm pretty sure that after back surgery you're on strict bedrest, so its not that surprising that he isn't at the champions dinner.
If Mickelson would've had the same injury, I can guarantee you he wouldn't have come. Nobody would after back surgery.
